Canadian Anti-Spam Law: A Compliance Guide for Marketers

The Fighting Internet & Wireless Spam Act (FISA, Bill C-28) is wending it’s way through the legislative process in Canada.

Canada may be late to the game of anti-spam legislation, but their bill C-28 is a game-changer for bad senders and spammers.

In anticipation of the new law, Return Path partnered with Thindata 1:1, the law offices of Kris Klein, and The Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email (CAUCE North America), to produce an invaluable ‘how-to’ document: The Marketer’s Guide to Applying FISA: How to Leverage Canada’s Newest Internet Law

The guide will be premiered at The Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) general meeting in Washington D.C.

The guide offers clear advice on how to become compliant with the Canadian law, including a comprehensive set of cross-references to CAN-SPAM.

We encourage all email senders to grab a copy of the guide, available now.
