Message Relay Service (7-1-1)
Message Relay Service (MRS) is an operator service that allows people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, speech-disabled, or deaf-blind to place calls to standard telephone users via a keyboard or assistive device.
Video Relay Service
Video Relay Service (VRS) is a free service provided by SRV Canada VRS. VRS helps people who use sign language to communicate with voice telephone users. VRS callers are connected by video with a sign language interpreter who provides real time interpretation for telephone calls.
If you live in Canada and are deaf, hard-of-hearing or speech impaired, and wish to communicate via video using sign language, then you're eligible to use VRS.
VRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
Visit SRV Canada VRS’s Register page to register for VRS and learn how to make and receive VRS calls. For support and assistance using VRS, please review the FAQ page and contact SRV Canada VRS directly.
Fido Mobile customers using VRS over the network within Canada have unlimited access to VRS.
Sign Language Interpreter Services
Customers who would like to bring a sign language interpreter while at a Fido store are invited to do so. You can book an interpreter through the Canadian Hearing Services or any other service you use. Any associated costs will be invoiced by the interpreter to the Fido store directly.
