Schedule:
12:00 – 12:30 p.m: Lunch & Networking
12:30 – 2:00 p.m: Panel Discussion

There is only six months to achieve compliance with Canada’s anti-spam legislation. Organizations currently relying on opt-out or implied consent for their electronic communications with consumers will be required to shift to an opt-in model or rely on narrow exceptions in the new law. The potential penalties for non-compliance are severe.
Organizations may face significant operational challenges and costs in dealing with the anti-spam requirements, including with respect to information technology and marketing. This program will provide practical guidance to those managing the risks associated with Canada’s anti-spam legislation and will also provide insights from a large Canadian retail organization on how it is managing the transition.

Our panel will discuss key aspects of the new legislative regime, including:

  • What is the impact of Industry Canada’s new anti-spam regulations?
  • What does the legislation cover and what will businesses be expected to do?
  • What are the exceptions to the prohibitions in the anti-spam legislation?
  • What are the consequences of non-compliance?
  • What are some practical strategies for compliance?

Moderator:
Carolyn Stamegna, Goodmans LLP
