How to report spam

Please use our online form to report spam or submit information about other electronic threats.

The information you provide is an essential part of the intelligence the Spam Reporting Centre gathers on spam and electronic threats. We receive a large volume of complaints (about 5,000 per week) and each report of spam is valuable.

Note: Your submissions help us enforce Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation, but we'll only contact you if we need more details.

Please note: Complaints about unsolicited phone calls should not be sent to the Spam Reporting Centre. They should be submitted to the CRTC through its National Do Not Call List.

Your privacy

Before you can submit anything, you must read the information below and consent to the Privacy Notice Statement. The Privacy Notice Statement provides information about how we collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information and about how to exercise your right to access that information.

Read the Privacy Notice Statement.

Your consent

Does your submission concern or contain malware? Malware is malicious software, such as viruses, worms and trojans. You can attach malware samples to your submission or forward them to the unique email address that will automatically be generated for you during the form submission process. Please be advised that there are risks associated with handling malware.

By checking "I agree" and clicking "Continue," you confirm that you have read, understood and agree to the terms of the Privacy Notice Statement concerning the online form and any material attached or forwarded with any email you send.

Specifically, you agree that Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada will collect and transmit information, including any personal information that you have voluntarily provided, to the Spam Reporting Centre for the purposes of supporting the enforcement activities of the 3 enforcement agencies responsible for ensuring compliance with CASL: the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, the Competition Bureau, and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner (collectively, the "CASL enforcement agencies").

Furthermore, you understand that any relevant personal information submitted within, or with, the online form or by e-mail may be disclosed to Canadian or foreign governments or organizations by the CASL enforcement agencies for the sole purpose of administering or enforcing a law or carrying out a lawful investigation, as explained in the Privacy Notice Statement.
