Industry Canada has launched a web site to inform Canadians about Canada’s new anti-spam legislation. The site has some useful information about the law which is simply referred to as “Canada’s new anti-spam law”, as the law has no short name. The information at the site includes “key facts”, an “FAQ”, information about the new Spam Reporting Centre, and how the law will be enforced and administered. A link to the law is also at the site.
While the basic information on the site is useful, it does not delve into the many complexities and difficulties Canadian businesses will have to grapple with to try and comply with the new law.
