Eastlink: local since the beginning

Posted on December 30, 2021 | Sponsored Content | 0 Comments

Deeply rooted in Atlantic Canada, Eastlink comes from humble beginnings in small town Nova Scotia and has called Nova Scotia home for 50 years. With a deep passion and respect for where it all began, Eastlink’s head office and core network operations remain rooted right here in its home province.

“We grew up in Atlantic Canada. We’re your neighbours and we’re committed to doing everything we can to support Atlantic Canada,” says Eastlink Executive Vice Chair Lee Bragg who adds that this region is rife with dedicated, hardworking, talented and passionate businesses and entrepreneurs, both emerging and established.

When asked about what he thinks are some of the most important contributors to the growth and success of this region, Mr. Bragg explained that our collective ability to embrace and showcase local success stories, share challenges and learn from one another is key. “This ultimately contributes to more jobs, more diverse business opportunities, and greater economic prosperity.

And it is that spirit of local love and support that carries Eastlink forward in its day to day operations.



The company credits its development over the years in large part to the support of its customers and in particular, Atlantic Canadians, who have embraced us as their “hometown team”.

“We take particular pride in the collaborative way we work with local business customers, no matter their size. We see it as a partnership and an opportunity to work together to support each other and ultimately grow our local economy together,” says Jeff Gillham, Eastlink CEO.

While Eastlink has grown well beyond its home province, it has stayed comparatively small, light-footed, and true to its humble beginnings. It has remained, all these years later, a family business, built on the values of hard work, listening to the people and communities it serves, and championing local business and organizations all of which help our local communities thrive.

Eastlink is a proud Canadian, family-owned and operated company with roots that began on a blueberry farm in rural Nova Scotia. Today, Eastlink delivers world-class communications services, including high speed internet, mobile, TV, phone, data services, security and smart home solutions, to residential, business and public sector customers in seven provinces across Canada. Eastlink showcases the people, places and things that shape our communities on its Community TV Platform.
