Canadian Bill C-37 (Do-Not-Call Law)

Canada’s Do-Not-Call Legislation (Bill C-37) has now been enacted and will come into force upon a date to be set by the Governor in Council. The legislation contains a number of exceptions in respect of a national do-not-call list (but exempt entities, except those calling to conduct surveys, must still maintain their own do-not-call lists):

– registered charities
– pre-existing business relationship (unless a do-not-call request has been made)
– candidates and registered political parties
– surveys
– solicitation of subscriptions to newspapers of general circulation
