Certimail was founded in 2013 to provide Canadian SMBs with an affordable and efficient solution to manage their Canadian Anti-Spam Law compliance. Certimail’s innovative approach is based on a year of R&D in partnership with researchers from the Faculty of Law at the Université de Montréal and from the École Polytechnique and ÉTS software engineering schools.
Philippe Le Roux is a serial entrepreneur who founded Phéromone in 1994, Quebec’s very first web marketing agency. After 20 years supporting large organisations, such as VIA Rail, RDS Sports Television Station, Le Devoir and Club Med USA to name a few, in their digital strategy, he sold the agency in 2013 to focus on helping SMBs. In doing so, he founded Certimail, which has already helped dozens of Canadian SMBs to implement CASL compliance programs and optimise their email marketing.
