STIR/SHAKEN in Canada: An Update
What should Canadian TSPs consider when implementing call authentication to mitigate nuisance calls?
The rise in nuisance calls, call spoofing, and fraud in Canada has resulted in new regulations for Telephone Service Providers (TSPs) to implement STIR/SHAKEN call authentication.
On April 6th the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) announced a mandate that TSPs must implement STIR/SHAKEN by 30 November 2021 (they had previously stated that TSPs should implement STIR/SHAKEN by 30 June 2021). In addition, the CRTC has also directed TSPs to file a STIR/SHAKEN implementation readiness assessment report by 31 August 2021.
Although some TSPs are already deploying and testing STIR/SHAKEN, the continuously changing market and regulatory conditions have left many still confused about what they should do next.
