Today is the first day for consumers to add themselves to the Canadian Do Not Call List (https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/) but the online system has been overwhelmed with people looking to get added to the list.
If you want more info on the national DNCL, you can check out some past posts and these resources:
- Canadian Do Not Call List - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia;
- C-37, amending the Telecommunciations Act permitting the Do Not Call List;
- National Do Not Call List (DNCL) info from the CRTC
- Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules and Amendment to the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules;
And if you're inclined to tell telemarketers not to call you, you should also take advantage of iOptOut, which also appears to be down.
