: : Domain Registrations Inquiries : A Note Regarding .CA Domains Print
Question:A Note Regarding .CA Domains
Answer:Please note that registrants must meet the Canadian Presence Requirements for Registrants in order to qualify for a .CA domain. In simple terms, this means that the registrant must:

[*] live or do business in Canada,

[*] be a Canadian Citizen or have a Canadian postal address.

During the registration process, be mindful of the relationship between the Organization name and the Legal Type of the organization in Step 3.

If you select "Canadian Corporation" as the Legal Type, it requires a government recognized company or corporation to be entered in the "Organization" field (i.e., the organization name must have Inc. Corp., Ltd., etc., in the name).

If you select Canadian Citizen as the Legal Type, it requires the primary contact's first name and last name to be entered in the "Full Name" field as well as the "Organization" field.

If your organization doesn't fall into either of these categories, the best choice is Canadian Citizen as the Legal Type and then enter "first and last name" in the Organization field. Refer to the Canadian Presence Requirements for Registrants for all legal types and for additional examples.

Some .CA domain names may appear as available but may be reserved for government use, or may be reserved for the owner of one or more third-level ( or fourth-level domains ( In either of these cases, our domain registrar (OpenSRS) and us will contact you to inform and advise. The CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority) may require confirming documentation for domains registered for municipal use. In this case, CIRA will email you with a special instructions.

IMPORTANT: All .CA domain registrations require confirmation with CIRA and acceptance of the .CA Registration Agreement. Monitor your email after submitting your .CA domain registration. You will receive an email from CIRA with instructions you must follow in order to complete your registration. CIRA will cancel a .CA domain registration that is not confirmed within 7 days of submission.
