Public Consultation Open for Draft Regulations Under Canada’s Anti-spam Legislation

August 16, 2011

The Canadian federal government released for public consultation two different sets of draft regulations under Canada’s anti-spam legislation (the “Act” or “CASL”)1.  The Act seeks to combat internet and wireless spam, and certain unauthorized activities relating to electronic messages and the use of other persons’ computers.  One set of draft regulations was released by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (“CRTC”) on June 30, 2011.  The other set was released by the Department of Industry on July 9, 2011.

For a summary of the Act, the draft CRTC regulations and the draft Department of Industry regulations, please see the Client Advisory issue of the Miller Thomson Information Technology Newsletter.
