T9-1-1

T9-1-1 is an emergency texting service for deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired subscribers to communicate with a 9-1-1 call centre in an emergency.

Relay Service

Customers with speech or hearing impairment can use TTY or another communication device for the deaf (TDD) to make calls.

IP Relay

IP Relay uses the familiarity of online chat applications to make communication easier for people who are hearing or speech impaired.

Trial Periods

If you are unsatisfied with your wireless service, there may be an opportunity for you to cancel it without incurring any termination fees or other penalties.

Mobility Discount

A person with a disability that limits their device use or increases their reliance disproportionately on voice, data, or text may be eligible for a 50% discount off their monthly wireless plan and additional billable wireless features and services. This same discount can also be extended to one caregiver or family member.
