Several Canadian telecom companies have responded to the Russian invasion of Ukraine by temporarily waiving long distance calling fees to Ukraine. On Friday, Distributel Inc. and its Primus subsidiary announced the companies would waive long distance fees for home phone calls to the country. "The news of what is happening in Ukraine has touched all of us at Distributel. We are committed to doing what we can to help all those who need to reach their loved ones during this time of need," Distributel's chief revenue officer Brad Fisher said in a release. Saskatchewan Telecommunications Holding Corp. also announced Friday that effective immediately it would do the same and waive calling fees to Ukraine for customers until Mar. 31, alongside roaming for customers in Ukraine. “In times like these, it’s important that we come together and support those in our community who are impacted by the tragic events unfolding in Ukraine,” the minister responsible for the company Don Morgan said in a release. “To the thousands of Ukrainian-Canadian families that call our province home, please know that Saskatchewan stands with you and Ukraine.” On Thursday, Quebecor Inc. also waived fees for calls to the country.
