Directory Assistance

Shaw Mobile offers a credit for the visually impaired to cover the cost of three (3) directory assistance calls per month.

To qualify for this credit, you'll need to activate a standard plan and contact us to have the credit applied to the account.

To receive the credit, you’ll also need to maintain your account in good standing. User activities that result in a lapsed subscription or unsubscribing will result in loss of the eligibility for this credit.

If you require your contract, invoices, and other information in an alternative format this can be completed free of charge for customers with disabilities, upon request. Contact us to make a request.
