Canada's New Anti-Spam Law: Are You in Compliance?

Canada has recently enacted a comprehensive federal law to deal with SPAM and malware that may possibly be the toughest of its kind in the world. This law will come into force on July 1, 2014 and marketers who send any form of commercial electronic messages to Canadians will need to understand the detailed rules that now govern this form of communication. Penalties for noncompliance are severe and can apply directly to directors and officers. This on-demand webinar will help marketers, email database managers, social media operators and anyone who sends commercial electronic communications to Canada to understand the new rules in place. Failure to comply with this new law can expose a company and its directors to penalties of up to $10 million dollars and class action lawsuits of much greater magnitude. Register today to learn how to stay compliant.
