Comwave Telenetworks Inc. paid a penalty of $100,000 for violations of the CRTC’s telemarketing rules, the regulator said. In a notice on its website Wednesday, the CRTC said Comwave, which is affiliated with Comwave Telecommunications Inc., paid the fee to the federal government after the commission issued a notice of violation for making calls to consumers whose numbers were listed on the national do-not call list. “In addition to paying monetary penalties, Comwave has decided, on its own volition, to cease telemarketing,” the CRTC said. The commission said if the company continued telemarketing, it agreed to review its compliance programs and appoint a compliance officer, implement training and education programs for staff, and provide the CRTC with an annual report documenting consumer complaints and how they were resolved. The CRTC said its efforts related to the unsolicited telemarking rules have resulted in more than $2.5 million in penalties to date and more than $740,000 in payments to post-secondary institutions.
