  • In December 2010 Canada passed the Anti-Spam Law ("CASL"), the world's most stringent anti-spam law. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ("CRTC") issued the final version of the Electronic Commerce Protection Regulations ("Regulations") implementing certain portions of the CASL on March 5, 2012, and on March 28 the CRTC issued Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2012-183 (the "Regulatory Policy"), which further explains the Regulation and provides some guidance as to how certain requirements will be implemented.
