Understanding Canada’s Anti-Spam Law Starting July 1, 2017


Is your organization fully compliant with Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)?

After a three-year transition period, CASL will be in full effect starting July 1, 2017. It’s important that you understand how your organization can be affected.

CASL covers much more than so-called “spam.” Commercial electronic messaging (CEM) is a huge part of how businesses communicate with customers. Activities such as sending out e-newsletters, running a company website and/or offering a downloadable app are all now subject to full-fledged rules and regulations under CASL.

Your operation might be breaking the rules right now, and you don’t know it.

The three regulatory agencies — CRTC, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and the Competition Bureau — have had three years to prepare for full enforcement, and class action lawsuits are widely anticipated. In addition to the regulatory agencies preparing to bring down the hammer, any private party who believes they have been affected by a company’s non-compliance can bring a lawsuit to the table (a.k.a. private right of action).

Ryan Turner, an associate at Taylor McCaffrey LLP and CASL expert, will walk you through everything you need to know about CASL: what it covers, how it is regulated, and how to avoid a lawsuit.

Register today to learn how to comply with CASL.
