Mission of Chebucto Community Net

Chebucto Community Net was established for the benefit of the community. Its mission is to:

  • create a favourable environment for business and employment growth.

Chebucto Community Net is a not for profit, charity organization that thrives on its volunteer resources, and warmly receives all offers of time and energy from its members.
