Canada’s telecom regulator says it’s still finding telemarketing companies that haven’t followed the so-called Do Not Call rules.
The CRTC said Monday it has issued citations to 74 companies and levied fines in 11 additional cases.
The latest fines totalled $41,000.
That’s a relatively small amount compared with the $2.1-million in penalties that the CRTC has levied against telemarketers since the rules were put in place.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission oversees the national Do Not Call list, which protects consumers from unwanted sales calls.
The CRTC handed citations to telemarketers that weren’t registered with the Do Not Call list and monetary penalties were levied for more serious breaches.
