Montreal Company Pleads Guilty to Deceptive Telemarketing

Thompson Hill Publishing, a telemarketing company based in Montreal, pleaded guilty to making false or misleading representations and engaging in deceptive telemarketing. An investigation by the Competition Bureau found that the company operated a scheme where its telemarketers would call businesses and mislead them into thinking that they were due for a renewal of an existing listing in the business directory, when in fact the purpose of the call was to sell a new listing. Under the corporate guilty plea, Thompson Hill also agreed to pay $180,000 in fines and is banned from engaging in any telemarketing activities for five years.
