Wireless Age Announces Participation in Canada's ecoACTION Plan and ecoENERGY Retrofit for Homes Program

June 8, 2011 - TORONTO, ONTARIO

Wireless Age Communications, Inc., (PINK SHEETS: WLSA), ("Wireless Age" or "the Company") announces its participation in Canada's ecoACTION Plan and ecoENERGY Retrofit for Homes Program.

On June 6, 2011 the Honourable James M. Flaherty, Canada's Minister of Finance, introduced the next phase of Canada's economic action plan and tabled the highlights of the Federal Budget. Included in this Budget are very pertinent inclusions that provide significant funding to continue to protect Canada's natural environment, address environmental risks, and improve Canada's weather services, with new budget measures.

The most relevant highlight is the $400 million allocation in 2011-12 for the ecoENERGY Retrofit Program to help homeowners make their homes more energy efficient and reduce the burden of high energy costs. Homeowners will be once again eligible for grants and rebates to make their homes more energy efficient by acting on measures such as energy efficient water heaters, furnaces, air conditioners and insulation products.

Enwise Homes Services Inc. and Enwise Building Sciences Inc., subsidiary companies of Wireless Age Communications, Inc. are companies that provide the sales and installation of energy retrofit products and services and also provide certified government energy audits that qualify customers for these rebates directly under the ecoENERGY Retrofit for Homes Program.

John Simmonds, CEO of Wireless Age Communications, Inc., stated, "With much excitement and anticipation, we have been waiting for the highlights of the Federal Budget to be released. We are very pleased that the Canadian government has shown this commitment to home owners and energy conservation. This $400 Million allocation greatly strengthens our value proposition for Enwise and will have great impact to further enhancing our business model through strategic partnerships."
