Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation
What does Canada’s new anti-spam legislation mean for your business?
Spam and other electronic threats are a real concern to individual Canadians and businesses. The federal government passed a new anti-spam law in December 2010 that goes in effect on July 1, 2014. Once in force, the new law will apply to any business that sends commercial messages using electronic channels to sell or promote products or services.
