WARNING TO CANADIANS ABOUT MISLEADING MAILINGS FOR INTERNET DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATIONS

Source: E-CommerceALERT.com and the Competition Bureau of Canada

Posted on July 20, 2001

      The Competition Bureau issued a warning today to Canadian consumers and businesses that own Internet domain names to take caution before paying what appear to be invoices from the "Internet Registry of Canada" for the registration or re-registration of their domain names.

      The "Internet Registry of Canada" is not certified by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), the body officially sanctioned to administer the registration of the ".ca" domain name in Canada. Only CIRA Certified Registrars can apply to CIRA for registration of ".ca" domain names. For a list of CIRA certified registrars please visit their web site at www.cira.ca.

      Complaints received by the Competition Bureau indicate that the mailings from the "Internet Registry of Canada" give the impression that it is affiliated with the Government of Canada or that it is an officially sanctioned agency registering domain names in Canada. The "Internet Registry of Canada" is not associated with any government agency.

      The Competition Bureau is an independent law enforcement agency that ensures all Canadians enjoy the benefits of a competitive economy, low prices, product choice and quality service. It oversees the application of the Competition Act, the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act, the Textile Labelling Act and the Precious Metals Marking Act. The Competition Bureau examines complaints of suspected misleading representations in the marketplace. Businesses and consumers who believe they have been misled should contact the Bureau toll free at 1-800-348-5358 or visit the Bureau's web site located at: www.competition.ic.gc.ca.
