(November 13, 2017, 9:18 AM EST) — The House of Commons Industry Committee is currently wrapping up its expedited statutory review of Canada’s anti-spam law (CASL). The committee’s fast-tracking of this file is likely the result of attention earlier this year surrounding the projected coming into force (on July 1) of CASL’s private right of action (PRA) — and its suspension pending the review.
The process of bringing forward any significant changes to the law will be inevitably lengthy, involving an in-depth review by the responsible government department (Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada) following which comment by stakeholders and further review by the committee will be sought prior to any amendments being enacted.
