Wireless Communications Make Canada Stronger

Wireless has spawned a communications revolution. And certainly, in a country as large as ours, any technology that brings us closer also makes us stronger. Particularly since Canada has some of the most advanced wireless networks in the world.

But the story doesn’t end there. The economic contribution of Canada’s wireless industry is equally profound. It contributes $21 billion directly to Canadian gross domestic product and over 270,000 jobs to the Canadian economy. We invest in the country and in our people. A strong signal for a stronger Canada.
