Starting today, Canadians can opt to have their number striken from the lists of telemarketers.

The CRTC’s new Do Not Call List will function in much the same way as its counterpart in the US, allowing certain groups such as charities and political parties permission to contact those on the list. However, these groups will also be restricted in the hours they can call during.
