Canada has the strictest anti-spam legislation in the world along with the most severe penalties. Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) came into effect on July 1, 2014 to help deter spam, protect you from hackers and cyber threats, and help businesses continue to be competitive in a global marketplace. The 3 year transitional period that gave businesses a chance to adapt to the rules ended on July 1, 2017 and now there are some new rules in place. As you may both send and receive emails and other electronic messages, it’s important that you and your organization be in full compliance to ensure you do not violate these rules. Both individuals and organizations can be penalized for non-compliance.
Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) is an interactive online training course that explains what CASL is and how you can comply with the new legislation.
