Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) will be coming into force July 1, meaning businesses will have to watch what kinds of electronic messages they’re allowed to send their customers. And here at IT Business.ca, we’ve been preparing a series of stories on what kinds of messages are green-lighted under the new laws, and what kinds of messages can land businesses a hefty fine.
Yesterday, IT World Canada and the law firm of Heenan Blaikie LLP ran a workshop for about 60 attendees, with lawyers Adam Kardash and Joanna Fine explaining how to mitigate risk and comply with CASL. They gave us deeper insight into the laws’ effects from a legal standpoint.
Here are Kardash and Fine, giving us a quick explanation of what we will all need to know when CASL arrives.
