Does Canada's New Anti-Spam Law Apply?
No type of organization, including charities and non-profit organizations, is exempt from Canada's Anti-Spam legislation.
If you use electronic channels to promote or market your organization, products or services, Canada's new Anti-Spam Law may affect you.
You should ask yourself:
Q: Do you use email, SMS, social media or instant messaging to send commercial or promotional information about your organization to reach customers, prospects and other important audiences?
Q: Do you install software programs on people's computers or mobile devices?
Q: Do you carry out these activities in or from Canada?
If you answered yes, go to fightspam.gc.ca for more information.
