Telephones Map of Ontario, Quebec, Western Canada and Yukon (1906)

Contained within the 1st Edition (1906) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate that shows five maps. The maps show the telephone network for Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Yukon. Two or more lines may follow the same route, but due to the scale of the map the inclusion of all the telephone lines in the vicinity of the larger cities and towns were not permitted. The telephone lines and their end nodes are represented as solid grey lines, and many lines follow alongside railway tracks. The map indicates the shore line portions of the various cable lines, the Pacific ocean in British Columbia, and inland waters in Alberta, central Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Each segment is magnified into separate boundaries, and divided from one another. The maps includes major cities, counties, rivers, major bodies of water, and the railway systems running past the border and into part of the U.S.

Telecommunications in Canada

Communications play a large role in all modern societies - they are particularly important to Canada. The country has always been consistently in the forefront of communications technology. The first trans-atlantic radio message was received in Newfoundland by Marconi. Today, Canada has the world's largest contiguous cellular telephone network and the world's first commercial telephone system.

Canadian geography, population distribution, and political organization have always required effective communication systems. Canada's population spreads across 6,000 km from sea to sea to sea. Communications are one of the major threads holding this country together.

The country along with its major provinces like Ontario, Quebec, Western Canada and Yukon, has excellent communications having one of the world's highest levels of universal telephone service. Canadian communication systems include satellite communications, national data networks, optical fibre networks, cellular telephony, cable TV, and virtually universal Internet access.
