In Canada, the sale of radio apparatus, interference-causing equipment, terminal equipment, and jammers is regulated by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada ("ISED"), and these products must meet certain standards and be certified or registered when applicable. These regulations are intended to prevent interference and protect the safety of Canadians. As well, Amazon policy requires you to include a photo of the Labelling Information described in the Compliance Requirements section below on the product detail page.
Canada does not allow the sale of jammers or radio transmitters designed to interfere with other communication systems.
