Canada finally adopts an anti-spam law – New challenges for electronic communications

Lassonde Nicolas

Conference on the recent law adopted by the Canadian Government with respect to spam

On May 31, 2011, Mtre Nicolas Lassonde gave a presentation relating to the new anti-spam legislation which aims at eliminating spam from the internet and wireless communications networks during the Big Bang forum organized by the Quebec Technology Association.

Electronic communications will now be governed by much stricter rules aiming at eliminating some practices that were discouraging commercial activities by electronic means. Spam, together with similar threats from unsolicited electronic contacts (including identity theft, phishing, spyware, viruses and botnet) will now be subject to administrative and monetary sanctions. The business community must rapidly deploy adequate communication strategies in order to comply with this new legal environment.
