Not Contact Service
Tired of having your evenings interrupted by telemarketers? Canada has a "do not call" service, run by the Canadian Marketing Association (CMA). Consumers can register to have their names removed from marketing lists held by members of the CMA. CMA members, who account for about 80 percent of direct response sales in Canada, want to present offers only to those consumers interested in their products and services.
Create & manage your personal Do-Not-Call list. A free public service offered by University of Ottawa professor Michael Geist.
