Default Footing for telepost?

Is there really a need to dig the basement floor to pour a footing to where the telepost should stand? If so, what is the average dimension of the concrete footing (area, volume)?
what will you recommend in correcting a deflected beam, teleposts or sistering the beam?
I live in Saskatchewan Canada where basement floorings aren't stable due to climate change.
I really need help in decision making....Thank you in advance!!

You do need a footing since you have no idea how thick the concrete floor actually is and what is under it.

I would assume a 24"x24" footing 8" thick should be adequate if the soil looks reasonable. Saw the outline of the square to provide a neat patch.
