THE CANADIAN ANTI-SPAM LAW

SEVERE, COMPLEX, & MISUNDERSTOOD

If companies such as Porter, Amazon, and Rogers, who rely on the support of many lawyers and marketing specialists, have had to pay huge fines, it’s because CASL is as complex as it is severe.

Many companies mistakenly believe that having consent and an unsubscribe link in their newsletters is enough to avoid fines. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, there are 100+ compliance risks.

CASL COMPLIANCE: YOUR ONLY PROTECTION AGAINST PENALTIES

YOUR ONLY DEFENCE

A CASL compliance program meeting the CRTC’s requirements is your only defence:

“The development and proper implementation of a documented and effective corporate compliance program is a useful risk-management strategy: it may (i) reduce the likelihood of businesses violating the rules and/or CASL, and (ii) help businesses establish a due diligence defence in the case of a violation of the rules or CASL.”
