DomainReport.ca - MyID has now posted their auction schedule for .ca domain names in May and June (see below).
MyID.ca will be holding weekly auctions during the months of May and June 2009.
The auctions will take place on Tuesdays, and will start at 1:00 pm Toronto time. Bidding will be open for 2-3 hours depending on number of domains auctioned and the auction anti-sniping extension. The first auction will happen on Tuesday May 5, 2009. The last auction (before summer break)will take place on June 23, 2009. In total 8 auctions will take place in May and June. The auction schedule for the summer will be announced later.
As the bidding period is relatively short (few hours), we will allow proxy bids to be placed by those that won't be able to attend a certain bidding
session. These bids will be hidden and will be placed as proxy bids when bidding starts.
