Celebrating 20 years of good
For more than a century, TELUS has been delivering innovative telecommunications solutions to western Canadians. Two decades ago, we first expanded east to become a truly national company.
This expansion launched our iconic national brand, personified by our lovable critters - from curious meerkats and irresistible pandas to adorable lion cubs.
As we mark 20 years as a national brand, we’re also celebrating building a friendlier future for all Canadians. Since 2000 we have given $1.3 billion and countless volunteering hours with our hearts and hands because we believe that good business and doing good are mutually inclusive.
Enjoy a stroll down memory lane with some of our lovable critter friends.
Internet for Good
20 years ago, we set out to make the future friendlier across Canada. Today, programs like Internet for Good™ are making it friendlier by connecting families in need with low-cost, high-speed internet. #InternetforGood #AllConnectedforGood #20YearsofGood
