Funding Granted

In April 2014, the Emergency 911 Act introduced a $0.44 monthly levy on all cellphones in Alberta. The funding collected through the levy is used to strengthen and support local delivery of 911 by supporting staffing and training costs to manage increased call volumes, updating hardware, and to pay for new advancements in emergency technology.
 
The first quarterly payments were issued in September 2014 and more than $15 million in additional funding is provided annually to Alberta’s 911 centres. Each centre receives $18,750 in base funding every quarter. The remainder of the funding the centre receives is based on the percentage of the population they serve. The following table breaks down the quarterly funds granted to each centre.
