TELUS donates $1 million to 70 charities in greater Quebec City to support youth with technology-focused health and education projects

Quebec City, Quebec – Today, TELUS and the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation revealed the details of a donation of nearly a million dollars to some 70 charities in the Greater Quebec City area. This was announced during the 12th edition of the TELUS Celebration of Giving in Quebec City, an annual event that rewards the exemplary work of volunteers and professionals who are committed to build a brighter future for underprivileged kids through technology, health and educational programs so they can learn, grow, and reach their full potential.

“Each year, I am deeply inspired by our local charities which work tirelessly to enrich the lives of young people in our area,” says Martin Cousineau, President and CEO of the Lobe clinic network, and president of the TELUS Community Board in Quebec City. “It is a great privilege for me to sit on the TELUS Community Board as it brings the most promising ideas to life, giving organizations the tools they need to get their ambitious projects up and running. This year, we encouraged youth to take a stand against violence in sport through virtual reality, young people living with a disability learned to express themselves through adapted art workshops, and we enhanced the community services offered to vulnerable families in the streets of the Beauce region after last spring’s floods.”

Dozens of representatives attending the TELUS Celebration of Giving took part in a seminar on the state of philanthropy in Quebec, presented by experts from Générosité 360. TELUS also celebrated the community engagement of Mathis Pelletier and Eldin Yinela Araujo Reyes, who received the Prix Jeune philanthrope TELUS, an award that encourages young philanthropists to become positive leaders. Mathis and Yinela each received $1,000, including $750 that will be donated to the charities of their choice: Fondation Sourdine and Motivaction Jeunesse.

The million-dollar donation announced today comes from the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, the TELUS Community Board in Quebec City, contributions from active and retired team members, as well as corporate donations and sponsorships. Since its creation eight years ago, the TELUS Community Board in Quebec City has given more than $4.5 million to support nearly 600 youth health and education projects in the Quebec City, Chaudière-Appalaches, Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Centre-du-Québec, and Estrie regions. The Board is supported by the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, which helps more than two million young people across Canada each year.

These are a few examples of projects supported this year by the TELUS Community Board in Quebec City:

  • A program that uses virtual reality to heighten young people’s awareness of violence in sport with Corporation SPORTSQUÉBEC
  • Launch of a theatre and dance performance with the Entr’actes organization, which places youths living with disabilities at the heart of the creative process
  • Art and technology workshops offered by Laura Lémerveil and adapted for children living with a physical and/or intellectual disability
  • Workshops given by the Le code des filles organization to introduce high school girls to information technology through 3D printing
  • Homework assistance and literacy programs for children, parents and educators with Maison de la Famille de Lotbinière, a parenting support agency
  • Enhanced street social work programs for teens and families in the Beauce region with the Maison des jeunes L’Utopie after last spring’s floods
  • Activities offered by Motivaction Jeunesse for young girls and new immigrants to encourage perseverance and build self-confidence
  • Launch of a contest between schools to mobilize students to do a major cleaning of their schoolyard through the PurNat organization
  • Participation of vulnerable young women and gender-queer youth at the Quebec City YMCA enabling them to develop new skills and positive leadership

TELUS network in Canada beats fastest country in the world

 TELUS’ record-breaking download speeds at 75 Mbps,handily beat South Korea’s national average download speeds at 58.7 Mbps. 

Canada places second in global ranking for wireless speed, behind only South Korea.

TELUS beats fastest country in the world.

Toronto

TELUS announced today that it has been recognized as the best network in Canada for 4G Availability, Video Experience, Download Speed Experience, Latency Experience, and Upload Speed Experience in Opensignal’s Canada: Mobile Network Experience Report¹ , in addition to earning 2019 Fastest Mobile Network and Best Mobile Coverage Speedtest Awards in Canada from Seattle-based Ookla® for Q3-Q4 2019.

“Our achievements from Opensignal and Ookla recognize TELUS’ network superiority within Canada and around the globe. This reinforces the value of our continued capital investments in broadband wireless and fibre technologies, which are increasingly critical as we evolve toward a 5G world,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO, TELUS.

Canada as a country placed second in UK-based Opensignal’s global ranking of national average download speeds of all countries in the world, behind only South Korea, with a slight difference: 58.7 Mbps and 55.4 Mbps, . It is notable that South Korea is 1/100th the size of Canada. Moreover, previous analysis by Opensignal has shown that if rural Canada were a country, it would rank 12th in the world for download speed². This would have rural Canada being faster than every urban market in the United States.

“Bravo to the movie, Parasite, on winning the Oscar for best picture, but the award for best wireless performance in the world goes to TELUS’ record-breaking 4G network speeds at 75 Mbps, beating South Korea’s 5G national average download speeds of 58.7 Mbps,” continued Entwistle. “Just imagine what will happen in Canada when we launch 5G. Go Canada go!”

Since 2000, TELUS has invested more than $181 billion in network infrastructure and spectrum to enhance the coverage, speed and reliability of its world-class network and connect customers from coast to coast. TELUS has committed to invest a further $40 billion over the next three years in critical technology components to support the roll out of 5G networks which will enhance innovation and help drive digital development across industries in a new age of hyper-connectedness.

Mobile healthcare technology in action. 235,000 Canadians experience homelessness each year, often while facing complex mental health and addiction issues. Many cannot easily access traditional medical care, yet urgently need help, especially with the unprecedented opioid crisis fueling an exponential rise in emergency room visits.

Our Health for Good️program funds TELUS Mobile Health Clinics, powered by TELUS Health technology, that improve the way health practitioners deliver care for the most vulnerable among us, respecting their privacy and dignity while reminding them that they are not alone. Because a friendlier future for all begins with a single act of kindness.

Telus has committed $1 million over five years to pay for the van and equipment, and to help staff it. The partnership includes Ottawa Inner City Health, Ottawa Public Health, The Royal and both the Sandy Hill and Somerset West Community Health Centres.

Where we operate

Together with our local community health partners listed below, we offer an effective model of primary care outreach that is addressing specific needs within each community. In 2020, we plan to expand the program from coast to coast.
