I would question the need for introducing a “Code of Ethics” as CIRA has sufficient policies in place for .CA registrants. Adding an additional barrier for interested parties to obtain their .CA Domain only makes it more difficult to get, and start using, their domain. Additionally, it would add a new burden on CIRA operations as a proposed “Code of Ethics” would need to be managed and enforced, otherwise it becomes meaningless.
Based on CIRA holding a solid standard for registrations within the domain industry, it would be worth discussing with the Board why a “Code of Ethics” is being considered as the concerns are likely already captured in existing processes.
