Cell Phone Towers

Most of the authority for regulating Wireless Communication Facilities (WCF) lies with the Federal Government - local governments have limited legal powers in this area. However, there are opportunities to work collaboratively with wireless carriers in regards to location and aesthetics.

The attached Protocol has been approved by Coquitlam City Council as a City policy. For your information, we have included here a statement form the Vancouver Coastal Health's Chief Medical Health Information Officer and a brochure with more extensive information that has been published by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association.
