Iristel enables more than 7 million phone numbers for thousands of telecom and technology companies around the world. And in the wake of higher volumes in unwanted telemarketing and spam phone calls, the CRTC and Canada’s telecom service providers have begun to take some more hard-hitting measures to protect Canadians.
