TELUS is investing over $24 million in Richmond this year as part of its $17 billion investment over the next five years to enhance wireless connectivity and connect homes and businesses across British Columbia to its world-leading TELUS PureFibre network—supporting innovation, economic growth and strong, vibrant communities.

Since 2000, TELUS has invested more than $63 billion in British Columbia to build and develop network infrastructure, operations and spectrum, connecting families and businesses across the province and cementing TELUS’ position as B.C.’s best internet service provider.*

“At TELUS, we know that a reliable and powerful network is essential in keeping British Columbians connected to the people, information and resources that matter most,” said Darren Entwistle, president and chief executive officer of TELUS. “That is why we are investing more than $17 billion in network infrastructure, operations and spectrum in British Columbia over the next five years, bringing our total commitment to $73 billion across Canada by 2028.

"These investments will ensure that our customers continue to benefit from the best network experience in the world, which facilitates crucial, generational changes in healthcare, education, teleworking, the environment and our digital economy and societies. Perhaps most importantly, our networks also bridge digital and socioeconomic divides, so every member of our society has the opportunity to reach their full potential.” 

TELUS is shaping the future by using its world-leading networks to enhance productivity and foster positive innovations in health, education, agriculture, climate change, energy, transportation and social equity, helping to fuel economic growth across the province.

Driven by a deep sense of compassion and inspired by its dedicated team, TELUS is committed to addressing the most pressing challenges of our time. The company is focused on delivering industry-best technology solutions and programs that positively impact lives, with ongoing plans through 2028 to make a meaningful difference in British Columbia and across Canada. 

As of this year, the Vancouver and Coastal Community Board has exceeded $15 million in donations to youth-focused charitable organizations since 2005. Last year, the board granted $900,000 to 49 charities dedicated to supporting youth, 28 health programs and 21 education programs.
