Our family tree keeps growing

Discover how we’ve become western Canada’s leading network and content specialist.

Since connecting our first cable customer in 1971, our family of companies has grown to become Western Canada’s leading network and content experience company, delivering the highest-quality consumer, business and content products.

Shaw Communications Inc. and Shaw Cablesystems G.P.

In 1966, Shaw Communications Inc. was incorporated under the name Capital Cable Television. Five years later, under the leadership of JR Shaw, we made our first cable connection in Sherwood Park, Alta. This sparked a firestorm of cable entertainment opportunities we nourished and grew.

Today, as Shaw Communications Inc., we proudly serve 3.2 million customers, including 1.9 million subscribers to Shaw Internet and more than one million Shaw Home Phone customers. Our extensive and reliable network is comprised of 860,000 kilometres of fibre.

Since Shaw's start as a cable company in Edmonton, we have expanded our network and the number of products and services we offer. And we're not stopping there. Shaw has always been a growth company and we're committed to creating exceptional experiences for our customers through innovative content and distribution offerings.

Shaw is traded on the Toronto (SJR.B) and New York (SJR) stock exchanges and is included in the S&P/TSX 60 Index.
