The CRTC has announced that it is extending the registration on the do-not-call list from three to five years.  Consumers will now only have to re-register every five years.

  1. That’s great…
    but first they should try to make it work. I’ve been registered and still get 2-5 calls every evening.

    The Good Ol’ CRTC lookin’ after us!
    1) I could never see why DNCL registration should ever expire in the first place. Those few who would occasionally wish to deregister can certainly do so when they want.

    2) And, what about iOptOut enforceability?? Seems this issue was completely buried, leaving us to wonder if iOptOut is being honoured by Bell, as originally mandated by the CRTC.

    Why do issues causing public outcry take so f$&#xki;n’ long to get an answer on, while corporate interests get to be heard on a daily basis?!

    Current DNCL-related issues swept under the rug:
    – Bell AIC illegal telemarketing practices
    – iOptOut enforcement/legitimacy
    – Inappropriate distribution of DNCL lists by the CRTC
    – No discussions planned to implement better methodology to the DNCL.
    – No discussions on possible use of current Bell technology that would have made a DNCL completely unnecessary in the first place.

  3. Wasn’t it “Do-not-HESITATE-to-call”?
    Because calls are still coming.

  4. Great
    This is great news!
