    In 2003 the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) opened the National Do Not Call Registry to give consumers the opportunity to limit telemarketing calls.
    The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) administered the National Do Not Call List in 2004.

    In the following comments we will provide more information. And please, feel free to ask your questions!

    After 31 days, most sales calls wills stop. Please note, that only telemarketing calls are prohibited by the Do Not Call Registry and National Do Not Call List.

    You still may receive calls from charities, political parties as well as business-to-business calls and survey calls.
