Shaw to Credit Accounts of Fort McMurray Customers

Shaw Communications Inc. announced that it will be providing a one-month service credit to all customers in Fort McMurray and surrounding Northern Alberta communities affected by the recent wildfires that swept through the city, resulting in mandatory evacuation on Tuesday, May 3.

The application of this credit – retroactive to May 3 – will ensure all affected customers continue to have access to Shaw Go WiFi, FreeRange TV and their email account while they are out of their homes without needing to worry about their account’s status.

In addition, all residents and visitors in Northern Alberta and Edmonton have been given open access to the Shaw Go WiFi network where available. This connection allows residents to have access to timely news and information, and help them stay in touch with friends and loved ones, regardless of whether they are Shaw customers or not.

Citizens can access Shaw Go WiFi by searching for available WiFi connections on their smartphones, laptops, tablets or mobile devices, and selecting the ShawGo network. A full list of locations is available at or by downloading the Shaw Go WiFi Finder App.
