We recommend that you do further research before mailing these contacts any sensitive information. Cleanlist’s Address Append service can help you find an alternate mailing address for these records.
Traditional address correction services can only ensure that the address you have on file is valid and mailable. Right Party Verification goes a step further, by verifying that the addressee actually lives at the address you are mailing to. This can save you significant postage costs, as well as protecting you from fraud that can result from sending sensitive mail to the wrong person.
Cleanlist offers a Deceased Lookup service, which allows you to view a copy of the evidence contained in the Canadian Deceased Registry for each of your Deceased Identification matches. This evidence contains full obituary text as well as funeral home and/or newspaper information. It’s easy to use; contact your project manager to get access.
In order to best serve clients that come from very different industries, Cleanlist has developed two different deceased identification services – Deceased Suppression and Deceased Identification.
For marketers and other organizations looking to prioritize or remove prospects from direct marketing campaigns, our Deceased Suppression service is the most cost-effective and simple solution. With very good accuracy, we will flag your prospects as “Deceased Suppressed” or “Not Deceased Suppressed”.
For the financial industry and others looking to update their databases or to prevent fraud, our Deceased Identification service is a much more precise and customized solution. Deceased Identification uses an advanced algorithm that takes many factors into account, including date of birth, and assigns a confidence code to potentially deceased contacts. Additional evidence for each match is available, which you can use to confirm the accuracy of the match.
To ensure we have the most up-to-date information, the Canadian Deceased Registry is updated on a daily basis.
Cleanlist retains collected deceased records indefinitely, so records do not roll off the file after a set period of time.
Approximately 250,000 Canadians die each year.
The Canadian Deceased Registry contains over 3 million records, dating back to 2000 and earlier. Coverage rates are higher for more recent years and vary by region. Over 90% of Canadians who have died in the last five years can be found in the Canadian Deceased Registry.
Cleanlist’s deceased information is compiled from hundreds of different reputable sources, including funeral homes and community newspapers.
The Canadian Deceased Registry is a national database of deceased Canadians built by Cleanlist from multiple sources. Unlike in the United States, Canadian government bodies do not publish death records to the public. Cleanlist’s Canadian Deceased Registry is the most comprehensive database of its kind in Canada.
