The purpose of this session is to explain the less well-known aspects of the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL or the Act) and illustrate those in action through a series of case studies based on the actual enforcement activities of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). In so doing, we aim to position CASL as a unique piece of legislation, one that is particularly effective in curbing unlawful cyber activity, and the CRTC as an innovative, committed and agile stakeholder. Most importantly, we will endeavor to show how these case studies highlight the many ways in which organizations both public and private, local and foreign, can comply with the requirements of CASL and collaborate with one another to make the Canadian digital marketplace more secure.
