Registrations, Renewals and Transfers.
.CA is the only domain name reserved just for Canadians. So when you work in .CA, it works for you. It's like a Canadian flag that says you believe in a safe, secure and trustworthy internet experience.
Canadians are registering their .CA in such numbers that we're growing faster here than our counterparts are in almost every other country. And nearly everyone who holds .CA sites are renewing them, too.
