Preparing for Canada’s Anti-Spam Law

By Maggie Cavallin and Larry Munn

Canada’s anti-spam legislation was introduced in 2010, but its commencement date has been delayed while the Regulations under the Act are being finalized. The official title of the Act is “An Act to promote efficiency and adaptability of the Canadian economy by regulating certain activities that discourage reliance on electronic means of carrying out commercial activities, and to amend the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Act, the Competition Act, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and the Telecommunications Act“. It is more commonly known as – “Canada’s Anti-Spam Law” (or CASL).
