The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has been vigorously pursuing violations of the National Do Not Call (DNCL) Rules, which are a component of the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules (UTR). The UTRs encompass the National Do Not Call (DNCL) Rules, Telemarketing Rules and Automatic Dialing-Announcing Device (ADAD) Rules.
The Anti-spam bill places restrictions on the type of unsolicited communications organizations can send. You will only be allowed to send commercial electronic messages if the recipient has given express or implied consent. A commercial electronic message is one whose purpose is "to encourage participation in a commercial activity"...
Established in 1995, First Reference Inc. (known as La Référence in Quebec) provides Canadian organizations of any size with practical and authoritative resources to help ensure compliance.
