In 2014, WesTower and Bell brought together a group of carriers, tower contractor companies and telecom engineering firms to launch a Canadian association representing companies in the communications infrastructure industry.
STAC (Structure, Tower and Antenna Council) seeks to fill the void addressed in the United States by NATE (National Association of Tower Erectors).
STAC’s mission is to:
Promote safe work practices and uniform standards for all personnel involved with communications towers and related industry infrastructure;
Educate industry participants, government agencies and the general public on consistent standards, policies and best practices; and
Provide a unified voice for the wireless infrastructure sector.
