  • Electronic Messages include <br /> An email account <br /> A telephone message or text <br /> An instant messaging account <br /> Any similar account <br />
  • Has to be commercial – broader than CAN SPAM, no primary purpose <br /> <br /> Electronic Messages include <br /> An email account <br /> A telephone account; text messages (voice messages are excluded) <br /> An instant messaging account <br /> Any similar account <br /> <br /> Non-exhaustive list <br /> <br /> Sent to or from a computer system located in Canada. <br /> Exclusion for messages sent from Canada to another country with belief it will comply with another countries anti-spam legislation. Ex. The US.
  • Enforcement is done by Industry Canada and the CRTC. <br /> <br /> Broad investigative powers <br /> Administrative monetary penalties. <br /> Up to $10 Million per violation <br /> <br /> Competition Bureau (CB) <br /> Amends the Competition Act to include violations respecting: <br /> • Misleading and deceptive practices/ representations, including false headers, subject lines, etc... <br />
  • Consent must be auditable. You must be able to prove where your leads gave consent when called upon. <br />
  • Requires an action by the recipient. <br /> No check boxes. <br /> Never expires but can be revoked through an unsubscribe action. <br /> <br /> Clearly and conspicuously state purpose for obtaining consent. <br /> Clearly identify who is being given consent. If you are getting consent for a business partner you must state that business partner’s name . <br /> Provide contact information on behalf of who is getting consent. <br /> Inform individual that they can unsubscribe <br /> <br /> <br /> Image posted on CRTC website. <br /> Don’t NEED a check box. Check boxes are relevant where you may already have their email address.
  • Existing Business Relationship <br /> ‒  Recipient purchased, leased or engaged in bartering of virtually anything from the sender within the past 2 years <br /> ‒  Recipient accepted a business, investment or gaming opportunity offered by the sender within the past 2 years <br /> ‒  Recipient and the sender entered into a written contract in respect of any of the above and the contract is either currently in existence or expired within the past 2 years <br /> <br /> <br /> Existing Non-Business Relationship <br /> ‒  The sender is a club, association or voluntary organization and the recipient is or was a member in the past two years <br /> Less relevant for business senders <br /> <br /> A conspicuously published address. <br /> Website <br /> Directory <br /> Provided to the sender <br /> Has to be relevant to the person in their professional business capacity – relevant in a B2B <br /> <br /> May be looser than Terms of Service of some service providers. <br /> May not want to continue sending to inactives – even if it is still OK under the law
  • A business has six months where there is permission to send commercial email after an inquiry, which is converted to a two-year period of implied consent if the sender closes business with that recipient.
  • • Data management will be key to compliance. <br /> Review existing data and groups consents: <br /> •  Explicit * <br /> •  Implied <br /> Inquiry <br /> <br /> •  Third party <br /> •  Unknown <br /> •  None <br /> <br /> • Identify gaps in your database fields or the information you are tracking: <br /> •  Consent date <br /> •  Consent level <br /> •  Consent source <br /> o Website <br /> o IP address <br /> •  Last implied date <br /> •  Last contact date
  • Use this as a Marketing Opportunity! Show that you respect your recipients. <br />
  • a pre-checked box would be considered "opt-out" <br /> <br /> Maintain image of the form that was filled out. Online or offline. <br /> <br /> <br />
  • a pre-checked box would be considered "opt-out" <br /> <br /> Onerous requirements. <br /> CRTC backed off and these are “suggestions” <br /> <br /> Date, time, method, agent on the phone – whatever records you can maintain.
  • Where an existing business relationship or non-business relationship exists as of July 1, 2014, regardless of when the relationship began, implied consent is automatically refreshed until July 1, 2017 <br /> <br /> To rely on the provision, there must have been prior communication of CEMs between sender and recipient <br />
  • List Rental situations <br /> <br /> Must be relevant to original business where consent was given. <br /> <br />
  • CASL only applies to Commercial Electronic Messages <br /> <br /> CASL does not apply to messages that are sent: <br /> 1.  Within or between business, where there’s an ongoing relationship; <br /> 2.  In response to a request; <br /> 3.  To enforce a legal right or obligation; <br /> 4.  Via closed messaging systems; <br /> a)  Proprietary system <br /> b)  Messaging systems where ID and unsubscribe included on <br /> platform <br /> 5.  To a foreign jurisdiction in compliance with their spam law; (see Schedule 1 in the ECPR) <br /> 6.  By registered charities raising funds <br /> 7.  By political candidates or organizations, soliciting political contributions <br /> <br /> Personal email – ma protect the Forward to a Friend functions.
  • CEMs – Because the email contains some commercial purpose. <br /> <br /> Internal Communications within an Organization <br /> ‒  One member of an organization sends a CEM to another member of the organization <br /> ‒  The CEM concerns the activities of the organization <br /> ‒  Member includes: <br /> Employee <br /> Representative <br /> Consultant <br /> franchisee <br /> ‒  Key issue: how directly must the CEM “concern the activities” of the organization? <br /> <br /> Organization-to-Organization Communications <br /> ‒  A member of an organization sends a CEM to a member of another organization <br /> ‒  The two organizations have “a relationship” <br /> ‒  CEM concerns the activities of the receiving organization <br /> ‒  The term “relationship” is undefined – but clearly must be something other than the other types of “relationships” already defined in CASL <br /> ‒  Key issues: <br /> what kind of relationship must exist between the organizations? <br /> how directly must the CEM “concern the activities” of the other organization? <br /> <br /> Inquiry, Application, Solicited Communications <br /> CEM sent to a person engaged in a commercial activity and consists solely of an inquiry or application related to that activity <br />
