According to the Associate Secretary General’s office, the letters are being sent to select households in areas where the internet is not otherwise available. The subsidies include a free Starlink kit and a lower monthly subscription fee.

In the letter, as translated from French, Le Bouyonnec writes, “Your household, located at the address mentioned above, has been recognized as eligible by the Secretary for subsidized satellite internet service, which allows you to take advantage of a free connection kit as well as to benefit from a subscription preferential.”

The letter notes that the authentication process will begin in July. Aside from Quebec, SpaceX and Starlink is also working with Manitoba.
