Abstract

The paper provides a social capital framework to examine the implementation ICT in Aboriginal communities. Using case descriptions from First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, the paper discusses the potential opportunities offered by ICT in distinct fields, and analyzes from a social capital perspective the enabling and inhibiting conditions that seem to play a role in successful implementations of ICT in Aboriginal communities.
