Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) will impact business communications

Published by Brad Fougere on June 18, 2014

The world’s toughest anti-spam and malware law, commonly known as Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), will come into force in Canada on July 1, 2014.  Organizations must act now to comply with CASL by this fast-approaching deadline.  This article sets out the steps organizations should be taking to achieve compliance with CASL’s anti-spam provisions. 

CASL also contains provisions regarding the installation of computer programs on third-party computers.  These anti-malware provisions will come into force on January 15, 2015.  Additional procedures should be taken by organizations that install computer programs on other persons’ computers to comply with CASL’s malware provisions.  These additional procedures will be the subject of a separate article.

Together with Gowlings, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters have created a CASL resource to help guide business towards compliance with the new legislation.
