Final Notice of Pager Discontinuation

This is a reminder that Bell MTS is discontinuing pager service in Manitoba as of December 31, 2020. This change affects all residents, and many other healthcare workers across the province. Residents should have received the option to use a smartphone device provided by Shared Health, or use their personal device for work communications. Note that while your pager may still function on or after December 31, it should not be relied upon for communications.

We have also been informed that Shared Health will NOT be accounting for old pagers. All existing pagers will be disposed of via electronic recycling. You may either recycle the device yourself, or return it (in person or by mail) to the Shared Health office (1502-155 Carlton, R3C 3H8). You may safely disregard previous emails that indicated penalties for failing to return your pager.
