Have you or your company received a notice from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Committee (“CRTC”) that you are the subject of a complaint under Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”)? If so, you are not alone. Since CASL came into force on July 1, 2014, the CRTC has reportedly received over 210,000 complaints for violations of CASL.
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?
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.
