Operator. May I help you?: Bell Canada's 125 Years

Claire Poitras, INRS-Urbanisation, Culture et Société

We've come a long way since the invention of the telephone in 1874. Founded on April 29, 1880, the Bell Telephone Company of Canada has played a fundamental role in the development of the country's telephone industry. Its history is tied to that of the country and of a technology that shrinks distances, accelerates the pace of economic exchanges, keeps friends and families in touch and brings remote areas into contact with the outside world.
