CRTC fines Telelisting $260,000 for violating telemarketing rules

The latest fine is once again heading to Quebec for Telelisting, a company that provides telephone directory services for online lead generation, for soliciting Canadians who are registered on the DNCL. The fine is a whopping $260,000 and Telelisting has now finally committed to comply with the rules.

The National Do Not Call List (DNCL) was created by the CRTC in 2008 to make it easy for Canadians to register home phone, wireless, fax or VoIP telephone numbers to prevent unsolicited telemarketing calls. To date, over 12.7 million numbers have been registered, and the CRTC has ordered those who violate the telecommunications rules to pay over $5.7 million in penalties.
