CRTC set to unveil 'do not call' registry
« on: July 30, 2008, 04:16:19 PM »
Canadians tired of having their dinner disturbed by unwanted and unsolicited calls from telemarketers will soon be able to put their names on a "do not call" list intended to end the unwanted interruptions.

The Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is expected to announce Wednesday that the registry will be up and running by the end of September.

The U.S. has such a system in place, but it was only earlier this year that the CRTC asked for companies to submit tenders to investigate complaints under the list.

Bell Canada has been awarded a five-year contract to operate the list.

However, it would not serve as a complete ban on marketing-type calls. Businesses that have already an established relationship with the client would be exempt, as would political parties, polling companies and charities.
