What if I become ineligible for my .ca domain registration?

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) periodically audits domains to ensure they conform to eligibility requirements. If CIRA cannot confirm your eligibility status or you become ineligible to own a .CA domain name, CIRA may request information to prove your eligibility status. You must respond to CIRA within five days, or any .CA domains associated with your registrant account are deactivated. CIRA uses the information listed in your registrant account to contact you by phone, email, and snail mail prior to cancelling your .CA domain. For more information, please see Who can register .CA domains? which can be found on this page.

PLEASE NOTE: Robert Maxim can not be held responsible for .CA domain eligibility.
