The Canadian government has declared that 911 as we know it will soon go through a significant digital transformation for VoIP users. Due to the plethora of features which voice over internet protocol (VoIP) already has to offer, it is already a popular communication tool among Canadian businesses. The moving of emergency communications from analog to internet based is yet another reason why VoIP is considered so essential. This new technology has been coined “Next Generation 911”, or “NG911” for short. As of March 1st, 2022 all telecommunication providers have been directed to update their networks to prepare for Next Generation 911.
In recent years, many businesses have realized the benefits of operating in a fully remote workplace, or a hybrid setting, and have decided to make the transition away from working exclusively in-office. In fact, specialists claim that around 40 percent of jobs in Canada can be worked from home. Of the businesses who choose to migrate to the remote workspace it is important to understand their reliance on unified communications as a service (UCaaS).
The unique features associated with cloud-based VoIP have made it the most popular solution for workplace communication. We’ve compiled a list of these features and the main reasons why the majority of Canadian businesses have decided to rely on cloud VoIP. Additional insight will be provided into the comparison between cloud hosted PBX and onsite PBX.

Over recent years the professional Canadian work environment has evolved drastically. Advancements in technology have enabled certain jobs to be completed remotely. Various models of work now exist and are sought out by prospective workers. This entails job positions consisting of entirely remote hours, entirely in-office hours, or some combination of the two, often labeled ‘hybrid’. The idea is that for many jobs, it is no longer necessary to commute to the office in order to access information required to complete tasks. Due to the capabilities of cloud hosted infrastructure, files, data, and collaborative projects can be accessed over the internet from any device and from any location. This understanding of work, which doesn’t rely on the physical office, is being considered the new ‘normal’.
