Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) significantly impacts the electronic communication practices of companies operating in the Canadian marketplace. Designed as one of the most stringent anti-spam regimes in the world, the legislation imposes important restrictions on the use of electronic messages to encourage participation in commercial activities.
 
Most of CASL, including the rules surrounding sending commercial electronic messages, came into force on July 1, 2014. Provisions related to the unsolicited installation of computer programs or software will not come into force until January 15, 2015, and provisions providing for a private right of action will not come into force until July 1, 2017.

We have created this dedicated microsite to provide a variety of resources to help businesses adjust their practices to achieve and maintain compliance with CASL. We will continue to post resources and essential updates on the new law. Please check back regularly for updates.​
