Policy and Legislation

A telephone company, like any other successful business, poses the need for policy and legislation. A clear plan of action is needed in order to influence and determine the company’s decisions, such as deciding who will own what sectors of the business and how profit will be divided. Laws are proposed and enacted, and serve as the guiding principles that a company follows.

In a business as widespread and crucial to society as the telephone one, there is also a need to adapt to new situations posed by society’s growing needs and constantly-evolving technology. The telephone companies who have coloured Alberta’s past and who serve Albertans today have made a rich history in the field of policy and legislation.
