What "Suspended" Domains Are:
When a dot-ca domain is not renewed by its expiration date, it becomes suspended.
A domain name remains suspended for 30-45 days. A 30 day Redemption period
follow the suspension period. During this extended period, the domain
owner may reactivate the domain name and retain ownership by renewing it.
What "TBR" Domains Are:
stands for "To Be Released
When a dot-ca domain is not renewed within the suspension and redemption
periods, it is “deleted’” and becomes TBR(To Be Released).
The domain names in TBR status become available for registration during
a "special registration session"
How To Register These Domains:
Due to the high demand for many TBR domains,
CIRA has a special registration session before returning them to the pool
of available domains.
We have teamed up with our affiliate registrars to submit registration
requests as soon as this special registration session opens.
This provides the best possible chances of registering a domain name before
it gets released to the public.

free. You will only pay if the domain is successfully registered and awarded
