  • As the effective date of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) has passed, and most organizations have scrambled to determine what the legislations means to their organization’s communication channels, we now turn our mind to ongoing corporate compliance. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (the “CRTC”) (the main enforcement body for CASL), released its Compliance and Enforcement Bulletin CRTC 2014-326: Guidelines to help businesses develop corporate compliance programs (the “Guidelines”). The Guidelines provide what the CRTC believes to be best practices for businesses to comply with CASL and, in so doing, provides some guidance for businesses developing a compliance program.
