“WHOIS” is an online directory service that allows people to look up information about domain names in Canada.
CIRA maintains a WHOIS directory which permits queries to the .CA (Canada’s country code top-level domain) registry database.
What domain information does WHOIS display?
When doing a WHOIS lookup, you can find details such as:
Status (i.e. if a domain is currently available or registered)
The creation, expiry, and updated dates
Who owns the domain
Administrative, Technical and Billing Contacts*
How do I contact a registrant?
If you wish to contact a registrant whose information is not displayed in WHOIS, you may use the online Message Delivery form which will allow CIRA to send a message to a domain registrant on your behalf maintaining their anonymity.
