OBA Information Technology & Intellectual Property Law, Class Actions Law and Privacy & Access to Information Law PROGRAM | Original Program Date: June 6, 2017

Since coming into force on July 1, 2014, Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”) has created challenges for lawyers and their clients as they have worked to ensure compliance with the new legislation. This July 1st marks the next chapter for CASL as two significant elements come into play:

  1. The private right of action under section 47 is scheduled to come into effect, allowing private parties to sue for violations under CASL
  2. The transition period for implied consent under section 66 comes to an end.

Join our expert panel of privacy and class actions counsel to explore these impending changes, and what they mean for you and your clients. Make sure you are up-to-speed on the latest developments in advance of this looming deadline.
