At the end of September 2008, the Government of Canada instituted a “Do Not Call Registry”. A $1500 fine plus costs can be levied against a caller in breach and their Company will face a $15,000 fine.
Our business is based on referrals and contacts but all businesses must comply. At Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Ltd. we have purchased a special software that allows us to keep up-to-date with additions to the registry.
You can get information on the National Do Not Call Registry and register by clicking here. You can register all your phone numbers: home, fax, and cell phone. It seems to have made for a much quieter dinner hour at our house.
