ON government access to information disclosure on ONCA – so many pages and so little said

Since February 2019 there has not been any update from the Ontario government about ONCA coming into force. As we have noted before the Ontario government is no longer referring to ONCA coming into force in early 2020. A few months ago we put in a freedom of information request on ONCA and the computer company developing the new ONBIS system. We just received the answer to my ATIP request and needless to say it does not answer either of the questions with there being some significant redactions.

What do I need to know about Canada’s new anti-spam legislation?

Canada’s anti-spam legislation is expected to be declared in force in 2013. It will regulate most forms of commercial electronic messages sent to Canadians, including email, text messages and messages sent through social media. Under the anti-spam legislation, either express or implied consent is required before sending commercial electronic messages. In addition, the message must comply with prescribed information disclosures, and a mechanism to unsubscribe must be provided.
