When should I notify my telecommunications service provider(s) of my move?

It’s never too early to tell your telecom provider(s) about your move. To make sure all your services are reconnected to your new home in time, it is recommended to notify your telecom provider(s) at least four weeks before your moving date. This way, you can easily plan your desired installation time and date based around your day-to-day schedule.

What you should know!

In Quebec, if you plan to move around July 1st, you are part of the 250,000 other Quebecers who will fight for the best times for the installation of Internet, TV and Phone services. In this case, notify your service provider(s) eight weeks in advance. It does not cost anything to be well organized!

Moreover, in the years 2015 & 2016, among all provinces of Canada, those of British Columbia and Ontario were the principal recipients of net interprovincial migration (Statistics Canada). This means that if you are planning your move in one of these two provinces, you are competing with approximately 35,600 people combined for the installation of your TV, Phone and Internet services. You should thus be well prepared and notify your service providers as early as possible!
