The CAEP Regional Broadband Preparedness Study is now complete. CAEP enlisted the services of Craig Dobson from Taylor Warwick Consulting Limited to author this report. Copies have been sent to CAEP members; if you have not received your copy of the report, please let us know.

Regional Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) Project
The CAEP Regional BRE Survey and Toolkit were presented to CAEP members representatives through our Member Engagement Sessions in September.

The survey results and tool kit are available now; if you have not received a copy and wish to, please contact us.
