The Canada North Fibre Loop

Strengthening our Northern Network

The Canada North Fibre Loop (CNFL) is a fully redundant fibre network in Northern Canada that will strengthen internet, cellular and other telecommunications services for residents, businesses and governments in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

The CNFL will consist of three fibre networks independently owned by the Government of Yukon, Government of NWT, and Northwestel. The project to complete the fibre loop was launched in 2018.

Building the North

The Canada North Fibre Loop will ensure two possible routes for data traffic and protect telecommunications in 65 Northern Communities.

Even remote communities, served through Northwestel’s Whitehorse satellite facilities, will see their services strengthened.
