Since 1999 Atlantic Canada's First Nation Help Desk has been serving Education & Health in First Nation communities across Atlantic Canada. We’ve evolved from a small team of 2, established to provide basic desktop support to what we are today - a growing team of 10 staff that provides a wide range of tech services including fibre connectivity, videoconferencing, tech integration support, app development, web development, technical advice and various other forms of tech related services.
Our network, the Atlantic First Nation Network, has grown from 20 T1 circuits, to a full fibre network connecting 80+ education, health and other band operated sites with a bandwidth speed of at least 200Mbps (32 of 33 communities).
To reflect the evolution and growth of our department, we have rebranded as Atlantic First Nation Tech Services.
Atlantic First Nations Tech Services (previously known as 'Atlantic Canada's First Nation Help Desk') provides technology related services to education and health facilities across Atlantic Canada's First Nation communities.
Specializing in areas such as connectivity, networking, and troubleshooting - we're here to serve Health & Education in advancing the quality of life for all First Nation citizens within our jurisdiction.
