Description Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL) has forced credit unions to take a hard look at the commercial electronic messages they send. On July 1, 2017, CASL’s transition period expires and the private right of action comes into force, whereby actual and statutory damages can be sought for CASL violations. Due diligence is a critical factor for the CRTC in determining monetary penalties and will also be weighed heavily by the courts when awarding damages.

As the CRTC continues to release guidance documents and impose penalties, there is little tolerance for the lack of a CASL compliance program. Such a program is necessary for demonstrating due diligence, but what does this look like for a credit union?

During this webinar, Fazila Nurani will share detailed guidance based on lessons learned from the CRTC’s investigations, and based on a credit union CASL compliance audit conducted by PRIVATECH. Participants will receive key strategies for a CASL compliance program that can help avoid a CASL breach and a potentially serious fine. Participants will also hear about resources and tools available from the CCUA that can help them with their own CASL compliance initiatives.
