I received a call from an automated service, sound like some kind of group survey/discussion about the provincial budget, but it wasn't clear whether it was supposed to be from a political group or an actual government agency, which leads me to believe it's not any kind of legitimate call, since both political groups and civil servants have strict rules about clearly identifying themselves.
Political call, to ask for your participation in a townhall meeting over the phone about the upcoming provincial budget meeting. They left a message after calling twice back to back, and the message states that they will call back on March 6th.

Please contact me.
They called me August 1,2012. I didn't answer. Sounds like this is a good thing.

Thank you Canada for employing my countrymen in making these scam calls and to those of you who gave your credit card information, we thank you. Ha ha...Canada....home of suckers!

I've received repeated unwanted calls from this number and have been unsuccessful in blocking these calls through my phone service.
I receive frequent calls from this number (North Vancouver, BC). I have call screen on my phone (Telus) but still receive calls after attempts to block them. Irritating - yep!

Got a call from the 647 area code number at 10:18 pm, are most normal people not in bed since how they work, these calls are getting really annoying!! And this is not the first time I have seen this number on my phone.

This company spoofs fake 'calling from' new fake numbers every week (which is why you can't call back). For dialing, they use an computer-based auto-dialer. Pressing 9 just confirms your number is valid and adds it to their telemarketing database; pressing 1 does the same but puts you through to the fake survey (trying to get your address & credit card info) and ....
Did a reverse lookup on 1-800Notes last week - one user has posted valid weblink information identifying the culprits behind IND SURVEY GROUP and the 'fake cruise/fake survey'; a known to-be-fraudulent timeshare company. The relevant parts of the posting are quoted below. Of particular interest is both the 'Ripoff Report' which outlines all the fraudulent timeshare companies/names run & owned by this The Berkley Group (not the consulting company in Canada; but the Florida timeshare selling corporation); and the U.S./Florida Class Action Lawsuit:
