CASL is a new federal law aimed at eliminating unsolicited and malicious electronic communications. Originally introduced in December 2010, the majority of CASL’s provisions will come into force on July 1, 2014. Once in effect, organizations will have to comply with specific consent, disclosure and unsubscribe requirements when sending out electronic communications.
CASL is accompanied by two sets of regulations from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC Regs) and from Industry Canada (IC Regs). The CRTC has also issued two interpretative guidelines (referred to as Compliance and Enforcement Information Bulletins CRTC 2012-548 and 2012-549), but these guidelines do not have the force of law.
This guide provides basic information on CASL to help understand how it will impact electronic communication practices and will focus on CASL’s prohibition on “spam”.

La LCAP est une nouvelle loi fédérale visant l’élimination de communications électroniques non-sollicitées et malveillantes. Initialement introduites en décembre 2010, la majorité des dispositions de la LCAP seront mises en vigueur le 1er juillet 2014. Une fois en vigueur, les entreprises auront à se conformer avec les exigences de consentement spécifique, de divulgation et d’exclusion lors de l’envoi de communications électroniques.
La LCAP est accompagnée de deux règlements du Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes (Règ CRTC) et d’Industrie Canada (Règ IC). La CRTC a aussi émis trois bulletins d’information (désignés comme les Bulletins d’information de Conformité et Enquêtes CRTC 2012-548, 2012-549 et 2014-326), mais ces bulletins n’ont pas force de loi.
Ce guide fournit l’information de base au sujet de la LCAP pour aider à comprendre comment elle affectera les pratiques de communication électronique et se concentrera sur l’interdiction de la LCAP du « pourriel ».
