— Why we do not provide daily updates for .ca zone?
— Country-code registars never open their zone files to the public. The only way to discover domains in country-code zones is to do a massive recursive scan of all known websites. That's what we're doing. We use a massive cluster of servers and crawl the Web, then we check and clean the resulting lists. We know of millions of CCTLD-domains in hundreds of zones (and currently know of 557,029 domains in .ca zone), but we do not cover 100% of them (some of the smaller websites simply do not have any inbound links and that means that our crawlers cannot find them). Meanwhile we regularly add new domains to this list (2 times / month).

The .ca domain is the Internet country code top level domain for Canada, it is currently managed and administered by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority. Registration is done via certified registrars.

To apply and register a .ca domain, one must fulfill any one of the following stipulations:

• Be a Canadian citizen of the age of majority
• Be a permanent resident of Canada
• Be a legally recognized Canadian organization
• Be an Inuit, First Nation, Métis or other people indigenous to Canada
• Be a foreign resident of Canada that holds a registered Canadian trademark
• Be an executor, administrator or other legal representatives of a person or organization that meets the requirements
• Be a division of the government

Registration of a .ca domain is limited to the second level. According to a resolution passed in October 2010, registration of third level domains was discontinued the exception of already existing domains.

When the domain was created in 1987, it was put under the leadership of John Demco of the University of British Columbia. The first registrant of a .ca was the University of Prince Edward Island in January 1988. In an effort to liberalize registration processes and allow for fair opportunities to all entities, in 1997 at the Canadian annual Internet conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia, it was agreed that some reforms should be made to the registry. This resulted in the formation of the Canadian Internet Registration Authority which went on to take over the management of the .ca domain on December 1, 2000.
