12,000 complaints in February

More than 60,000 new telephone or fax numbers were registered with the National Do-Not Call List (DNCL) in February according to the CRTC, bringing the total number of registered numbers to 12.2 million.

The federal regulator says it received more than 12,000 complaints about telemarketing activity in February, and has received more than 700,000 complaints since introducing the DNCL in 2008.

The CRTC launched six new investigations into telemarketing complaints last month, while closing 15. It had 172 active investigations.

It also issued three administrative monetary penalties (AMPs), which are imposed when a telemarketer is found to be in violation of the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules. The report said that the CRTC has imposed 63 AMPs to date.
