Reclaim Your Domain Sponsorship

Reclaim Your Domain Sponsorship #canada #CIRA

TechSoup Canada has partnered with the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) on “Reclaim Your Domain”, an integrated campaign that will help Canadian nonprofits, charities and libraries learn how to take ownership of their online identity. We invite all Canadian NetSquared-affiliated groups to participate in the campaign, which includes a one year sponsorship in support of your local events.


The sponsorship covers events held during the 12 months of April 2016 to March 2017.
