    In Canada it is legal for one person to record conversations they are having with another person without that other person?s consent if you are using your own telephone line and not tampering with someone else?s telephone. The tapes are also admissible in evidence but there are certain evidentiary and practical rules that should be followed. For example, use only good equipment and know how to use it; practice using the equipment ; use only one tape per phone call, DO NOT TELL ANYONE YOU ARE TAPING PHONE CALLS, etc. However, before doings so, check with your lawyer to make to obtain guidelines on how to successfully and legally tape calls.
