The CRTC enhances the protection of Canadian’s privacy by rendering the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) permanent‏


The CRTC enhances the protection of Canadian's privacy by 
rendering the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) permanent
 
June 25, 2014 – Ottawa-Gatineau
 
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)
today announced that the registration of telecommunications numbers on the
National Do Not Call List (DNCL) will now be permanent.
 
Initially, number registrations with the National DNCL were for a set
amount of time, after which Canadians would have had to re-register their
numbers. This change enhances the CRTC’s ability to protect the privacy of
Canadians from unwanted telemarketing calls. Canadians can, at any time,
check the National DNCL to find out if their number is on the List and, if
they wish, have it removed.
 
The CRTC would like to remind telecommunications companies of the
importance of their role in maintaining the integrity of the National DNCL
and encourages the industry to keep working with the CRTC Interconnection
Steering Committee (CISC) to find an economic and viable mechanism to
remove from the List disconnected and reassigned numbers.
 
Over 12 million numbers are currently registered and, on average, 1,200
new numbers are still being added every day. The CRTC is continuing to
enhance its monitoring in order to ensure that all telemarketers follow
the rules. Since the creation of the National DNCL in 2008, the CRTC has
conducted 1,200 investigations and has imposed almost $4 million in
administrative monetary penalties, which are paid to the Receiver General
for Canada.
 
Quick facts
 
- The CRTC is improving the National DNCL by making registration
permanent.
- Canadians can remove their number from the National DNCL at any time.
- The CRTC reminds telecommunications companies of the importance of their
role in maintaining the integrity of the National DNCL.
- The CRTC is continuing to enhance its monitoring in order to ensure that
all telemarketers follow the rules.
 
Quote
"The National DNCL was created to respect the wishes of Canadians who do
not want to receive any more telemarketing calls. It therefore makes sense
that registration be made permanent in order to spare Canadians the
inconvenience of having to re-register their number on the List. We are
pursuing our efforts to ensure that telemarketers respect the wishes of
Canadians.”
- Jean-Pierre Blais, CRTC Chairman

Canadians can cancel their wireless contracts after two years under new CRTC wireless code


Wireless code to help Canadians make informed choices and contribute to a
dynamic marketplace

OTTAWA-GATINEAU, June 3, 2013 — Today, the Canadian Radio-television and
Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) issued a wireless code that will make
it easier for Canadians to understand their contracts and sets out their
basic rights. The code will apply to new contracts for cellphones and
other personal mobile devices starting on December 2, 2013.

“Every day, Canadians rely on wireless devices while in their homes, at
their jobs, at school or travelling abroad,” said Jean-Pierre Blais,
Chairman of the CRTC. “The wireless code will contribute to a more dynamic
marketplace by making it possible for Canadians to discuss their needs
with service providers at least every two years.”

The wireless code addresses the main frustrations that Canadians shared
with the CRTC, which included the length of wireless contracts,
cancellation fees, roaming charges and other industry practices. Among
other things, individual and small business consumers will be able to:

- terminate their wireless contracts after two years without cancellation
fees, even if they have signed on for a longer term 
- cap extra data charges at $50/month and international data roaming charges
at $100/month to prevent bill shock
- have their cellphones unlocked after 90 days, or immediately if they paid
for the device in full
- return their cellphones, within 15 days and specific usage limits, if they
are unhappy with their service
- accept or decline changes to the key terms of a fixed-term contract (i.e.,
2-year), and
- receive a contract that is easy to read and understand.

The wireless code will apply to all service providers in Canada. In
particular, the code will apply in full to postpaid services (where
customers pay a monthly bill after using their services), and where
applicable to pre-paid wireless services.

“The wireless code is a tool that will empower consumers and help them
make informed choices about the service options that best meet their
needs. To make the most of this tool, consumers also have a responsibility
to educate themselves,” Mr. Blais added. 

The participation of a large number of consumers and the collaboration of
the wireless industry will ensure the wireless code’s successful
implementation. The CRTC’s public consultation attracted over 5,000
participants, including individual Canadians, who shared their views on an
online discussion forum, in writing and at the public hearing held from
February 11 to 15, 2013.
