Workshop Topic:

Prepare Your Business for Canada’s New Anti-Spam Legislation – What Your Business NEEDS to Know

Starting July, 1, 2014 all businesses in Canada will need recipient consent before sending commercial electronic messages (CEMs) which include email and text message communications. Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL) will drastically change how commercial and non-profit entities engage electronically with their customers and others. Come join us May 28, 2014 for a breakfast, followed by a seminar on how this new legislation will affect your business or not for profit.

Presenting lawyer J. Paul R. Cassan and Student-At-Law Tim Harmar of Wishart Law Firm LLP will be giving a thorough look at the new legislation and how it will affect our local businesses and non-profit organizations. Paul
and Tim have spent several months preparing and going through the new legislation to learn the ins and outs of compliance for commercial entities and their communication with customers. Extensive penalties can result for businesses violating CASL, so it is essential for businesses in our community to make themselves aware of the changes this new legislation will bring.
