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.
