TLA - Don’t Let CASL Crunch Your Business
Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL) applies to anyone who uses electronic communication to engage in any kind of commercial transaction, including businesses, charities, and clubs. CASL makes it presumptively unlawful to use email and text messages for commercial purposes, unless strict requirements are met. The CRTC has made it clear that it will expect businesses that fall short of a standard of perfection to volunteer to pay fines.
Now, starting in July 2017, class actions seeking damages against companies that use email to do business will be possible. This nutshell will help you and your clients to develop compliance to mitigate regulatory and class action risks associated with CASL.
