About CIRA 

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) is a member-based not-for-profit organization, best known for managing the .CA internet domain on behalf of all Canadians, developing and implementing policies that support Canada’s internet community and representing the .CA registry internationally. We are building programs, products and services that leverage all the internet has to offer to help build a better online Canada, while providing a safe, secure and trusted online experience to all Canadians.

At CIRA we celebrate our successes but we never stall in our efforts to remain a leader within the internet community in Canada and in the global ccTLD community. Building a better online Canada and supporting the development of the internet globally requires nothing less.
