Conference calls in Canada

Dialpad lets you launch conference calls from any device, at any time, whether you’re in Ottawa or Vancouver. It only takes a few minutes for a Canadian business to sign up for a free trial with Dialpad and get started with a virtual number, so why not give it a go.

How to start a conference call from anywhere in Canada using Dialpad

With Dialpad, you can start a conference call by dialing a number or entering a contact's name in the desktop or mobile app. (Make sure to take time zones into account if you’re inviting participants from other countries or regions!)

The next step is to invite your participants to the call. Dialpad integrates with both Google Calendar and Microsoft 365, making it easy to create a meeting invite with an auto-populated link.

When it’s time to start to call, participants can join by clicking their link, or by dialing in using the details you’ve provided to them. To launch a conference call, just open up the Dialpad app or log in from your web browser. Then click on “Start Meeting” or the phone icon to start a call.

You can invite other participants to join an existing meeting room without having to leave the window. Simply click on “Participants”, and then “Invite participants”, and follow the on-screen prompts!

Start making conference calls in Canada with the right provider

If you’re looking to make easy-to-join, HD-quality conference calls, then choosing the right provider is vital. Many platforms will provide you with basic conference call functionality, but may limit the number of online meetings you can have or have poor call quality.

Dialpad gives you access to unlimited meetings on all paid plans, and includes advanced features like audio recordings, screen sharing, and real-time transcriptions.

You can even make international calls, so if you’re in Toronto, but you have remote employees in the United States or the United Kingdom, Dialpad can help bring you face to face with teammates and clients.

Dialpad isn’t just a conference calling platform, either. It basically has a built-in business phone system, team messaging, integrations with third-party apps, and even AI and call analytics. See how it works!
