The Canadian connection
There is a Canadian presence requirement for individuals, organizations and businesses to register a .CA domain. It’s the only domain name extension that identifies a website as 100% Canadian.
85% of Canadians prefer to be on a .CA domain than a .com when supporting local businesses.*
*Research conducted in 2022 by the Strategic Counsel
.CA is an established top-level domain and recognized as a safe, secure and trusted resource for Canadians. CIRA has been managing the registry since 2000.
Avoid thatreallylongdomainname.com. You might have a better chance of getting the domain name you really want in a .CA.
.CA gives back
Proceeds from every .CA sold are reinvested directly into the Canadian internet community through the Net Good program.
CIRA Members help advance the internet in Canada and shape the direction of CIRA. Membership is open to all .CA registrants.
