SSi Micro Careers and Employment

About us
In 1990, we started out as a small business selling and repairing computers in Fort Providence, Northwest Territories. Today, we are the North’s largest Internet Service Provider headquartered in the NWT’s capital city of Yellowknife.

As a company with deep northern roots, we understand first hand the importance of reliable communications in remote
 – more... and rural communities. That personal connection has been a driving force. It is why we believe in and love what we do.

At home in Northern Canada, our award winning company provides service to all 25 communities in Nunavut and several in the Northwest Territories with a satellite network and wireless broadband services.

This vast region has a population of 80,000 people dispersed over 3 million square kilometres. SSi has launched broadband service into many areas where the Internet did not previously exist, and provides a competitive alternative to the incumbent operator in small and remote markets. Since 2011, SSi has taken a lead role and spent significant resources in the pursuit of better broadband pricing and greater competitive choices in the North. This includes initiating and actively participating in a number of key proceedings before the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

In 2012 we opened a new state-of-the-art co-location facility and teleport in Kanata, Ontario. In 2013-14 we expanded our satellite access by installing a second large dish antenna at the teleport to link to an alternate satellite, while at the same time upgrading the nine largest communities in Nunavut with second antennas, thus providing significant redundancy to our network.

In 2016-2017, we upgraded the network to 4G-LTE technology to support high-speed mobile connectivity and enable the next generation of broadband services for northern residents, businesses and government.

There are many things on the SSi “want to do” list. The quest for the next great thing, with the devoted goal of improving and providing affordable communications solutions across the globe, is always a high priority. Watch for more news! There is always something new on the horizon for SSi.
