Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)

TeleCommunities Canada became an At Large Structure (ALS) of the North American Regional At Large Organisation (NARALO) of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in 2007. NARALO officially became part of ICANN at a signing ceremony in San Juan Puerto Rico on June 28, 2007.

ICANN is an internationally organized, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions. These services were originally performed under U.S. Government contract by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and other entities. ICANN now performs the IANA function.

As a private-public partnership, ICANN is dedicated to preserving the operational stability of the Internet; to promoting competition; to achieving broad representation of global Internet communities; and to developing policy appropriate to its mission through bottom-up, consensus-based processes.
