Anti-Spam (CASL)

Canada’s anti-spam law, unofficially called “CASL”, is one of the toughest laws of its kind in the world. It has the potential to regulate any individual or organization who sends e-mails, texts, social media messages or any other form of electronic communication to third parties in Canada, whether the recipients are businesses, consumers or individuals.

Miller Thomson’s Anti-Spam (CASL) team consists of lawyers from a variety of disciplines, who can assist our clients in understanding both CASL’s requirements and managing their compliance obligations under CASL.
