Are you ready for the Canada anti-spam legislation? – Part II

Last fall, I provided an overview of sections of the upcoming Canada Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”) and explained why every business, large or small, must begin preparing for it. Since then, there have been some developments in the area, most significantly, the announcement that the CASL will be coming into force on July 1, 2014. It is important that every business begin preparing for the CASL now, as, a few months from now, it will have a profound impact on how businesses engage in electronic communication and marketing.

New Canadian anti-spam laws on the horizon

Back in 2010, Bill C-28 (Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam) was passed by Parliament and received royal assent. It was expected to come into force in 2012, but delays in drafting the regulations mean that 2012 came and went without a coming-into-force date having been announced. This delay gives Canadian businesses, and any foreign entities that do business with Canada, more time to carefully consider what the legislation will require of them. The government will also grant a period between the publication of the finalized regulations and the coming into force of the legislation so that affected organizations have time to read and comply.
