911 Hearing & Speech Impaired Service
The CRTC ruled that all wireless carriers in Canada had to build infrastructure for the provision of T911 services. In order to access the service, people who are hearing or speech impaired need to register their cell phone with their wireless carrier. Once registered with their carrier as a T911 enabled phone, citizens can simply dial 911 as everyone else does. A 911 operator will be notified that the caller is a T911 recipient, and will initiate a text to the citizen, which will be the mode of communication from there on.
