What is the Registrant Whois Type when registering a .CA domain?


CIRA, the central registry for .CA has a Canadian Presence Requirement for registrants. Registrants will be asked to complete their .CA registrant settings including selecting a "Registrant Whois Type."

If you select a non-individual registrant type, which is any EXCEPT Canadian Citizen, Permanent Resident of Canada, Aboriginal Peoples (individuals or groups) indigenous to Canada, Legal Representative of a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident, then your default administrative contact must use a different contact record.

If your Whois Type is "Corporation (Canada or Canadian province or territory)," the contact record name must be the full legal name of the corporation and must be followed by the jurisdiction of incorporation (i.e. Canada, Ontario, NWT, …), unless it is obvious from the corporation’s name.

For more information, please see CIRA's Canadian Presence Requirements for Registrants.
