Tomorrow is July 1, 2014. It is a day that marks Canada’s “birthday”. It is also the date of the coming into force of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). While most Canadians will be out celebrating Canada Day with their families and friends, they should also be in compliance with CASL. But are they?
Canada’s new anti-spam legislation comes into effect later this year, and it packs a punch—fines of up to $10 million per violation for companies and up to $1 million per violation for individuals.
