Administrative history

Maritime Telegraph and Telephone Company Limited was incorporated in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on 22 April 1910 to consolidate the telephone and telegraph services across the Maritimes. The company purchased the majority of shares from the Telephone Company of Prince Edward Island and bought out the Nova Scotia Telephone Company.

In 1998 the four primary telephone companies in Atlantic Canada—Maritime Telegraph and Telephone Company, Island Telecom, NBTel and NewTel Communications—merged to form Aliant, which later became known as Bell Aliant.
