Voter Contact Registry

The Voter Contact Registry was created to help protect Canadians from rogue and misleading telephone calls during federal elections, and to ensure that those who contact voters during an election do so transparently.

Certain entities who call Canadians during an election period for any purpose related to an election must register with us within 48 hours of making the first call.

We are responsible for establishing and maintaining the Registry.
