Federal Universal Service Fund This is used to recover contributions Dialpad Communications is required to make to the federal Universal Service Fund, which is used to promote the access of telecommunications services at reasonable rates for those living in rural and high-cost areas, income-eligible consumers, rural health care facilities, and schools and libraries. Dialpad Communications is permitted, but not required, to recover these costs from its customers.

Canadian Offices Only: GST/HST
The goods and services tax (GST) is a tax that applies to most supplies and services in Canada. Generally, the harmonized sales tax (HST) is imposed in provinces that have harmonized their provincial sales tax with GST; these provinces are referred to as the "participating provinces."
The participating provinces are:
Newfoundland and Labrador
Prince Edward Island
In the remaining provinces and territories GST is imposed on taxable goods and services. In these provinces, there may also be a provincial sales tax or retail sales tax in place.
For rates of each province, see GST/HST rates. To learn more about the basics of GST/HST, click here.
