Following the global Note 7 recall that started last week, Canadians now have an official route from Samsung to replace their phone.

If you have a Galaxy Note 7 in your possession, you'll want to get it exchanged for a new unit. Regardless of whether you purchased the phone through your carrier or another retailer, Samsung Canada has made it clear how you'll be able to swap it out with a brand new unit free of charge.
