Porter Airlines Inc. fined $150,000 for violating CASL

It was announced yesterday by The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) that Porter Airlines Inc. has agreed to pay $150,000 as a result of alleged violations against Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL).

According to a news release issued by the Government of Canada, “Porter Airlines failed to comply with various requirements of the law between July 2014 and April 2015. The company allegedly sent some commercial emails that did not contain an unsubscribe mechanism. In other instances, it is alleged this mechanism was not clearly or prominently set out. Certain emails also allegedly did not provide the complete contact information as required by the law. Porter Airlines also allegedly failed to honour, within 10 business days, requests from some recipients to unsubscribe from receiving future commercial emails.”
