DNCL Prosecutions

The CRTC is catching telemarketing violators and fining them.

The DNCL has been frequently criticised as ineffective and badly managed. Things have improved since it was first implemented though costs have gone up very significantly for subscribers.

Prosecutions do result for offenders. When the list was new the CRTC often gave out warnings to encourage compliance. These days you should not count on just getting a warning.

Some of the prosecutions and penalties are reported on the CRTC web site.

A recent direct link to prosecution records is this one but if it stops working for any reason try navigating the main CRTC site. At the time this page was put up it showed 25 penalties assessed in 2010 and 11 in 2009. The rate of detection and prosecution seems to be increasing.
