Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation

We are committed to reducing the harmful effects of spam and related threats to electronic commerce and are working towards a safer and more secure online marketplace.

Canada’s new anti-spam legislation (CASL) helps protect Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace.

How is the CASL enforced? For the most part, CASL is enforced by undertakings and issuing notices of violations.

On October 11, 2016, the CRTC will be hosting a workshop in Bangkok, Thailand on Communications Security: Collaborating to eliminate spam and nuisance communications. The workshop will be held in partnership with the International Institute of Communications’ (IIC) Communications Policy & Regulation Week.

The issue of spam and nuisance communications is a priority for many governments, and one where international collaboration is needed in areas of policy, regulation, and enforcement. Our workshop will bring together international experts to discuss challenges and successes in moving the spam and nuisance communications agenda forward at home and abroad. Through information sharing and the exchange of views, this interactive workshop will identify actionable items for cross border collaboration in a rapidly changing environment.
