Canada’s anti-spam law (CASL)

Helping Organizations Prepare for Canada’s New Anti-Spam Legislation

The purpose of Canada’s new anti-spam law (CASL) is to help protect Canadians from unwanted spam, while ensuring that organizations can continue to compete effectively in the marketplace. It is intended to discourage electronic activities that compromise privacy and undermine the confidence of Canadians in electronic commerce. One of the main activities that CASL addresses is the sending of commercial electronic messages to recipients. The commercial electronic message (CEM) provisions of CASL came into force on July 1, 2014. Our lawyers have participated in a number of media interviews related to CASL, and prepared articles that provide an overview of CASL to help get you started in understanding its requirements. We Can Help You with CASL’s Requirements Our lawyers can help you understand how CASL’s requirements may affect your organization, and help you apply them in a practical way. If you would like to discuss CASL and how it applies to your organization, please contact Kimberley Cunnington-Taylor at 613-231-8299 or by e-mail at
