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. Taking into account direct, indirect and induced impacts, the Canadian wireless industry generated a total economic contribution of $22.4 billion in GDP to the Canadian economy in the 2013 calendar year, 2.3% above the overall economic benefit generated in 2012. We invest in the country and in our people. A strong signal for a stronger Canada.
