Texting 911 in Canada

911 operators will take texts from the phones of people who can't use the voice service in some Canadian cities as part of a 3 month experiment. If all goes well, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission will expand the program nationally. Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and the Peel Region are taking part in the trial run, which involves more than 100 people who have signed up to take part.
