Cell Numbers Go Public This Month

This is good info from the Gov't of Canada ...if you have a cell phone.

REMEMBER: Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.

REMINDER..... all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.


To prevent this, go to the following web-site for Canadian Telephone Numbers: and then click on English/French & then on "check my registration."

It is the National DO NOT CALL list It will only take a minute of your time. It blocks your number for five (5) years.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON. It takes about 20 seconds.

    Thanks I filled in the form.

    Although: exemptions from "do not call" list, i.e. even if your number is in do-not-call registry, telemarketers still can call you if they are:
    - Political parties, riding associations and candidates
    - If you are: Purchased, leased, or rented a product or service in the last eighteen (18) months from the telemarketer
    - Asked a telemarketer about a product or service within the last six (6) months

    Telemarketers may also call you if you have provided express consent to be called. Express consent includes:
    • Your permission on a written form, electronic form, or an online form; or
    • Your verbal permission.
    The National DNCL Rules do not apply to telemarketing calls made to businesses.
    Calls from organizations conducting market research, surveys, or public opinion polls are also exempt from the National Do Not Call List Rules and are not required to keep an internal do not call list. These types of calls are not telemarketing calls because the caller is not asking you to purchase, lease or rent products or services.

    So the chances for no-calls at dinner time are not that great after all!
