September 30, 2008 is the first day that you can register your phone numbers with the Canadian National Do Not Call List (DNCL).
Go register your number now!
The website is rather overloaded right now so you might have to try a few times to get your number registered. Don’t worry, you can register anytime after September 30 so even waiting a few days won’t make a huge difference.
While the National DNCL won’t stop all unwanted phone calls, it should stop you from getting those stupid timeshare offers and other annoying recorded messages that tend to come right around meal time.
Make sure you check out the Who Can Still Call You page for more information on the entities that are still able to harass you at meal time.
Also, the registration is only valid for 3 years. The website will give you an expiration date so put a reminder in your calendar for that date and a link back to the DNCL website so you can re-register.
