What we are doing
We recently launched a Request for proposal for the ongoing operation of the National Do Not Call List starting in January 2018. Businesses can apply until May 25, 2017 for this contract opportunity.
We regularly hold public hearings, round-table discussions, informal forums, and online discussion forums designed to gather Canadians' views about telecommunications services—information that we can then act on to serve the public interest. See what we’re doing today!
On-Going Applications (Part 1s)
