About the National Do Not Call list

Starting September 30, 2008, residents of Canada were able to register their telephone numbers on The National Do Not Call list online, by telephone and/or fax to reduce the number of telemarketing calls they receive. The list aims to give consumers a choice about which types of calls they receive and reduce unwanted solicitations by telemarketers.
