After a successful pilot project within British Columbia universities (BCNET), Canada eduroam is evolving into a cooperative Canada-wide service that links to a growing global eduroam community of over 450 institutions across 25 countries in Europe, Asia and Australia.

BCNET has been using Radiator RADIUS server to bring eduroam to British Columbia since 2005 and it now maintains Canada eduroam’s national radius servers on behalf of the umbrella organisation CUCCIO-CDPIUC.

In May 2008, Canada eduroam was connected to master RADIUS servers around the world and since then, higher education institutions across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario are joining up.

With Radiator RADIUS server and RadSec ensuring secure internet access and transportation, it is now possible for Canadian students, staff, researchers and faculty to access wireless Internet services when they travel across Canada and abroad without the need for obtaining a guest account.
