It’s been more than two-and-a-half months since Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, and Montreal-based Vidéotron is continuing to extend support.
After waiving off long-distance charges for calls made to the country, Vidéotron is now offering displaced Ukrainians new to Canada six months of free mobile service.
“Starting May 9, newcomers from Ukraine will be offered a free All-Inclusive 20 GB plan for six months to help them stay in touch with family and loved ones,” reads the provider’s release about the initiative. Additionally, Vidéotron will also donate about 1,000 refurbished mobile devices, which will be distributed to Ukrainian families in need.
Displaced Ukrainians new to Canada need to visit one of Vidéotron’s participating stores with a piece of ID and a proof of entry to Canada to avail the offer. Find the participating stores below:
