Canada’s Anti-Spam law to become law on July 1, 2014
Many businesses have been awaiting word on when Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”) would become law. Now there is a clear answer – July 1, 2014.
This past week the Government of Canada announced that the main provisions of CASL dealing with consent requirements for sending commercial electronic messages will come into effect on July 1, 2014.
On the same day Industry Canada published the final version of its regulations, the Electronic Commerce Protection Regulations
The other set of regulations under CASL from Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission (“CRTC”) have been final since early 2012.
The first part of CASL aims to protect consumers from unsolicited electronic messages by giving them control over who can send them a commercial electronic message or business email. Persons and businesses in violation of the new laws may face significant financial penalties.

I forgot to say in my previous email that when I was discussing this with Kendra a couple of days ago she said that yours was by far the best firm she had ever worked with on websites and that your staff were so good.

To be honest, when (it was) suggested that we design a web page, I was less than enthusiastic. But thoroughly enjoyed the process — it was very easy working with you. I can’t believe how quickly everything came together. And the result is fantastic. Thanks.
