In 2013 Cleanlist announced the release of Canada’s first comprehensive database of deceased Canadians. The Canadian Deceased Registry is a national database of deceased Canadians built by Cleanlist in cooperation with industry partners including hundreds of funeral homes and community newspapers. The database is updated daily and covers all of Canada’s 10 provinces and 3 territories.
The Canadian Deceased Registry contains over 2.8 million deceased Canadians with approximately 4,000 being added weekly. According to Statistics Canada, there are approximately 250,000 Canadian deaths each year.
For Financial Institutions, Insurance Companies, Pension Managers and related industries, the ability to quickly identify deceased individuals can lead to reduced delinquency rates, less fraud, saved downstream administration in collection and other trace departments, and prompt account closure and wrap-up.
For Marketers and Fundraisers, deceased suppression increases return-on-investment and response rates, saves resources and environmental waste, and avoids complaints by not offending surviving family members. If you’re looking to suppress contacts from your marketing campaign, we recommend Cleanlist’s Deceased Suppression service.
Cleanlist’s Deceased Identification service matches contacts in your file to the Canadian Deceased Registry. The identification algorithm uses name, address, and date of birth. Confidence codes are applied to each match to indicate the certainty of the match.
The Cleanlist Deceased Identification product includes access to a self-service web-site that you can use to further research the death by viewing an archived copy of the Cleanlist evidence contained in the Canadian Deceased Registry.
Cleanlist’s clients use this evidence, in conjunction with other collaborating data available internally, to review and confirm final results.
An included summary report provides statistical data describing your results.
