Have Microcells been installed where you live?

This Canadian Cellular Towers Interactive Map shows both macro (large) cell towers and micro (small) cell towers installed across Canada.

To use it, type your town or region into the “Location Search” box and click “Go”.

If you see a whole lot of towers pop up, chances are those are 4G or 5G microcells.

Note: The map is accurate but may not be 100% current.

Microcell Policy Checklist

~ Has your local government signed contracts permitting telecoms to install microcells?

~ If contracts have been signed, are these contracts exclusive?

~ Does your local government have an Antenna Siting Protocol?

~ If so, what does it say about microcell transmitters?

Suggested Action

Urge your local government to create the most protective Antenna Siting Protocol possible. They may use this handy checklist or this detailed document as a guide. Several US cities  have created ordinances restricting or prohibiting small cells and 5G. In Canada, federal law does not allow us to create bylaws that regulate where antennas are placed.
