NOTE: There are two items that can affect the domain ownership information displayed in a WHOIS lookup: Privacy

If you have applied Privacy to the Registrant of a domain, your contact details will be replaced with that of our CEO, Stephen Smith, along with our contact information

Registry Privacy

The .CA Registry (along with a few others, such as .TEL) affords a certain level of privacy to Registrants who have designated themselves to be of a non-commercial or organization nature (i.e. the domain is registered to an individual, and not a company or group). In these cases, the Registry will not display any Registrant information when a WHOIS lookup is done on a related domain.
