In Canada, the National Do Not Call List service came into operation on September 30, 2008. The list removes your name for a period of three years from the telemarketing lists of all organizations that place calls to Canadian consumers, with the exception of those phone calls that qualify as an exemption (see below). The National Do Not Call List applies to telemarketing only – that is, to unsolicited calls that sell or promote a product or service, or calls that solicit money or donations in lieu of money. Certain telemarketing and other calls are exempt from the list, including:

  • Telemarketing calls from a company with whom you have an existing business relationship
  • Telemarketing calls from charities registered under Section 248 of the Income Tax Act
  • Telemarketing calls from political parties calling on behalf of a candidate running for nomination or as part of an official campaign[
  • Telemarketing calls to solicit subscriptions for a newspaper of general circulation
  • Telemarketing calls made to a business consumer
  • Calls from market research firms that are conducting public opinion polls

As of Sept. 30, 2008, consumers can register their home phone, cellular or fax number(s) on the National DNCL. You can sign up online at or by calling the toll-free numbers 1-866-580-DNCL (1-866-580-3625) or 1-888-DNCL-TTY (1-888-362-5889).
