CASL, the University Sector, and the Private Right of Action

June 5th, 2017

I had the pleasure of speaking to the Council of Ontario Universities last week on the topic of Canada’s anti-spam law (CASL). July 1, 2017 is a milestone date with the private right of action (PRA) slated to come into force and the transitional period for the existing and non-existing business relationship implied consent provision coming to an end. Both these events are causing significant anxiety across the country and in countries with organizations doing business with Canadians, in all sectors. (My e-mail in-box and phone have been “ringing” off the hook.)
