Edmonton, Alberta – TELUS intends to invest $4.5 billion in new communications infrastructure across Alberta through 2019. This year alone, TELUS will invest more than $900 million in the province to extend fibre optic infrastructure directly to thousands of homes and businesses in rural and urban communities, further strengthen wireless service, and support key services including healthcare and education with new technologies.

“The TELUS team is unwavering in our commitment to continue investing in the future of this resilient province during challenging economic times, directly providing more than 1,250 full-time employment opportunities to support our fibre optic network expansion, the construction of TELUS Sky, and other significant infrastructure projects in the province whilst simultaneously contracting 20 subcontractors who are creating hundreds of additional jobs,” said Darren Entwistle, TELUS President and CEO. “By the end of 2019 TELUS will have invested $46 billion in Alberta since 2000 to provide Albertans with access to critical next-generation health, education, business and government services and solutions, securing Alberta’s place in the growing digital economy and contributing to the province’s economic health and success for generations to come.”

TELUS has paid and remitted $740 million in income, property and other taxes in the province since 2000. More importantly, in support of the company’s philosophy to give where we live, TELUS and its 14,000 team members and retirees in Alberta have contributed more than $135 million and volunteered more than 3.76 million volunteer hours to charitable and community organizations throughout the province since 2000.

"This investment in Alberta is another sign the private sector remains confident in the long-term prosperity of our great province,” said Premier Rachel Notley. “Building this network will create jobs through the economic downturn and offer more options for Alberta families and businesses as our government works to build a more resilient, diversified economy.”
