Sadly, no. You might be able to find an app to help you, but mostly, incoming calls are incoming calls, you can't block them on Koodo's level I'm afraid.

On Androids you can just tap and hold on the number and click block/report spam.

You might want to change your number if that continues. You probably shared your number somewhere on the internet which explains why you are getting those calls.

Curious to know where it came from usually fairly selective about handing it out but I guess it doesn't take much. If it continues I think I will try the change thanks for your reply

You might want to change your number if that continues. You probably shared your number somewhere...The only number on which I get occasional telemarketing calls is my landline of 15 years. None of the other 4 lines associated with my household get spam calls. You may have better success with a new number using the newest area codes, as they are more likely to be a fresh number, not one dropped by a customer who was getting spam (or bill collector) calls.
Have you tried Hiya or Truecaller? I highly recommend it. I started using Hiya (free version) a week ago and it has been helping a lot.
