We’re nearing the one year anniversary of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legilslation (CASL) coming into effect, on July 1. Ahead of that date and since then, businesses have been scrambling to ensure email practices are compliant with the new law. Some have been more proactive than others, and the first fines have even been issued for failure to comply with the rules.
