Small Businesses Not Ready for the Big Change to Spam Regulations That’s Coming in Two Weeks

Most small business owners aren’t ready for the new anti-spam law coming into effect this July, believes the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

The Canadian Anti-Spam Law, or CASL, will restrict how businesses communicate electronically with clients and prospects.

“I think this is going to be a pretty heavy-handed legislation and it’s going to take a lot of time before many small businesses are even aware that they have some obligations under this legislation and the regulations that go along with it,” CFIB vice-president Corinne Pohlmann said in an interview with The Canadian Press.
