CIRA - News Release - NEW POLICY TO SET STANDARD FOR INTERNET DOMAIN NAME PRIVACY:
"For individuals who register a dot-ca domain name, only the domain name, the name of the Registrar, the registration date, the "last change" date, notice regarding changes in status of the domain name and server IP numbers/names will be available through WHOIS. Individual dot-ca domain owners will have the option of making additional information accessible to the general public.
The policy for organizations - private and public - with dot-ca designations will not change; the same data will continue to be available through WHOIS. Organizations will be able to request that some of their information be kept private.
CIRA will continue to ensure all registration data - including information not made public under the new policy - is available to law enforcement agencies. "
