Telecommunication Towers

Demand for more and faster wireless service is growing in Canada. To accommodate this demand, new cell towers will be needed and must be located in the right places.

The federal government, through Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada is responsible for the regulations around cell towers. Wireless companies are required to work closely with municipalities and involve the public when they need to build a new cell tower.

The City drafted a protocol for new cell towers, to establish its preference for locating and designing the towers, as well as expectations for public consultation. The protocol will be reviewed by the Regina Planning Commission and City Council this summer.

The City’s priorities in the protocol include minimizing redundancy of facilities; avoiding heritage and natural lands; minimizing impacts on parks, open space and residential areas and integration with public realm, where possible.
