The Kenora District Services Board (KDSB) has received funding from the Federal Government of Canada to offer round 2 of ‘Connecting the Kenora District’, which provides high-speed internet within the Kenora District to those with limited or inadequate access to reliable, high-quality internet.

The KDSB has partnered with FSET Inc. in Kenora to administer the second round of rebates. Round 2 of ‘Connecting the Kenora District’ will again offer a public rebate program to anyone who has permanent residence within the Kenora District and has purchased or pre-ordered a Starlink kit on or after September 1, 2022.

The public rebate program is open to anyone who has a permanent residence (rent or own) within the Kenora District Townships and Municipalities or Federal Land. Additionally, there will be a one-kit rebate issued per household. Please be advised that businesses are not eligible to apply.

The rebate amount is 75% of the total kit cost, and on federal land, the rebate amount is 90% of the total kit cost, this rebate includes the shipping fee and taxes paid. Please note applicants will only be rebated 75% or 90% of the total kit cost at the time of purchase.

“We are pleased to have the ability to offer round two of the ‘Connecting the Kenora District’ rebate to households in the Kenora District. This initiative supports the importance of being connected and how vital digital access to resources and services are for families and individuals in the region in their everyday lives,” says Henry Wall, Chief Administrative Officer of the KDSB.

The public rebate program will open for applications on Thursday, May 19, 2023, at 10:00 am. It will be ongoing as kits are available and satellite capacity increases for the area where applicants reside. Starlink internet kits are limited; those who apply may not necessarily receive a kit supplied by Starlink. The deadline to apply for a rebate is November 3, 2023, or until project funding has been fully allocated, whichever comes first. The rebate program will be provided on a first-come-first-served basis.

Those interested in applying must provide:

  • Proof of kit purchase on or after September 1, 2022
  • Photo of installed Starlink kit
  • Location of installed Starlink kit (Google Plus Code or Street Address)
  • Speed Test results
