TRS allows persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or experience difficulty with speech and who use a teletypewriter phone (TTY) to have telephone conversations with people using standard telephones.

Because most hearing individuals and many businesses do not have TTYs, the Relay Service is often the only means for TTY users to communicate directly with other telephone users.

There is no charge for using the TELUS Relay Service to place local calls. Long distance calls are billed at a reduced rate.
