TELUS has a feature called "Advanced Call Forwarding" that has a
touch-tone controlled voice driven interface that lets you call
forward calls based on time of the day and/or caller number.

You can enable or disable it remotely.

It's virtually impossible for a telco to automatically forward
incoming calls when a line goes down -- There's not really such a
thing as a line going down, unless the entire CO goes down, in which
case call forwarding typically fails.
