The provisions of Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (known as “CASL”) dealing with commercial electronic messages will come into force on July 1, 2014. Organizations doing business in Canada need to take notice of the requirements of this legislation and to prepare for and implement its requirements into their day to day practices and procedures. Businesses must ensure that they have the appropriate legal and business policies, procedures and technical infrastructure in place, and perform ongoing monitoring to ensure compliance and avoid the significant penalties that can arise from failing to observe the law.
Much has been written on this legislation, but until now, no one has provided business with a truly practical guide on how to establish an effective CASL compliance plan. See the full article here.
