Hi folks. I was wondering if Telus is a Bell-owned brand or if, instead, it’s an independent operator. Thanks!

Although they use the same cell towers, Telus Canada is not owned by Bell. Both companies have their own hardware networks that are independent of each other. Telus was founded in 1990 and now has nearly 80,000 employees.

In Canada, Telus trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Its annual revenue is about $16 billion. It became the first technology company in Canada to implement a public indigenous reconciliation action plan in November.

Darren Entwistle has been president and CEO since 2000.

Telus offers a full range of communications services, including wireless, voice, high-speed Internet, television, video, home security, and more. In Canada, it is the leader in digital health technology. And Telus Agriculture provides digital solutions for the agriculture industry.

Using a free app on a phone, the basic Telus Health plan includes consultations with a doctor, making a video appointment with a family doctor or mental health counselor, getting referrals for tests or appointments with specialists, tracking and monitoring health, seeing doctors notes, and checking symptoms.

Telus bills itself as a company with a passionate social purpose with the goal of connecting all people for good and giving back in the communities where it works. Since 2000, its employees and retirees have contributed more than $820 million and 16 million days of service.

In 2021, more than 4,000 community organizations and charities received help from Telus and its employees to ease the burden of the pandemic.

In 2021, the company gave five percent of its annual pre-tax profits to charities, and employees gave $85 million to support nonprofits in Canada and throughout the world. Employees also volunteered 1.25 million hours.
