On Wednesday June 7, the Government of Canada announced that it is delaying indefinitely the coming into force of the private right of action (PRA) provisions (section 51) in Canada’s anti-spam law (CASL). For many, this pending threat of a private right of action had served as a call to action to finalize CASL compliance efforts that had been gathering dust on the shelves. However, notwithstanding this delay in implementing the PRA, CASL compliance should remain a key issue for organizations. This seminar outlines why CASL compliance remains critical, and sets out a roadmap to compliance with key milestones and deliverables, as well as key lessons learned from our past experience under CASL and what enforcement role the courts will now play.
