5G Canada Council
The 5G Canada Council supports a dynamic 5G ecosystem through advocacy,
research and cross-sector collaboration.
5G of “fifth generation” refers to the next generation of mobile wireless standards and technologies. 5G will enable a fully connected and mobile society, and deliver unprecedented benefits to citizens, industry and government.
The 5G Canada Council is a multistakeholder Council with a membership base that includes Canadian wireless carriers, network equipment providers, academia and other product and service providers in the 5G ecosystem.
Accelerating 5G in Canada – Benefits for Cities and Rural Communities
CWTA’s new 5G report explains how deploying 5G in Canada will bring important benefits for transportation, agriculture, energy and rural connectivity on a nationwide basis.
Like each generation of wireless technology that preceded it, 5G will bring enormous benefits for the economy and for Canadians’ quality of life. Given the misleading information being circulated about 5G, however, it is getting harder for non-experts to be sure of the facts. The CWTA and 5GCC have put together a short guide to help clear up common 5G safety myths and provide a starting point for those seeking information on the topic in Canada.
