The Therien-Mallaig Mutual Telephone Company was incorporated under The Companies Act on August 18, 1963 and served the area around Therien, Mallaig, Goodridge, St-Vincent and Glendon, Alberta.

Alberta Government Telephones (AGT) agreed to maintain and repair telephone systems and install or move telephone sets for Therien-Mallaig Mutual Telephone Company on September 1, 1967. The Therien-Mallaig Mutual Telephone Company transferred complete ownership to AGT in 1972.
