Information about The Wireless Code

Learn about The Wireless Code.

What is the Wireless Code?

The Wireless Code is a telecommunications regulatory policy issued by the Canadian Radio-Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to all Canadian wireless carriers so that retail and small business consumers of retail mobile wireless services will be better informed of their rights and obligations outlined in their contracts with service providers.

When did the Wireless Code come into effect?

On December 2, 2013, the CRTC required all Canadian wireless carriers to implement the Wireless Code. The CRTC updated the Wireless Code in 2017 with an effective date of December 1, 2017.

How will the Wireless Code affect me as a Tbaytel mobility customer?

The Wireless Code establishes basic consumer rights for consumers and new requirements for service providers. The Code limits cancellation fees and requires providers to unlock phones at no charge, offer trial periods for wireless contracts and set default caps on data charges to avoid bill shock.
