The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today announced that it executed an inspection warrant to enter and inspect a property in Brampton, Ontario, on November 24, 2015, as part of an ongoing investigation of a significant telemarketing operation. This company is alleged to be making unauthorized calls to numbers registered on the National Do Not Call List (DNCL) for the purpose of selling anti-virus software to Canadians.

The warrant, a first of its kind for the CRTC, was granted by an Ontario Justice of the Peace, and carried out with the help of the Peel Regional Police Services.
