C-27 the Electronic Commerce Protection Act


Last night was very exciting for a number of us here in Canada. The Canadian governments Standing Committee on Industry, Science & Technology finalized the Draft for Bill C-27 (The Anti-Spam Bill) and it will now be delivered to the House of Commons for a final all party vote.

The final draft will be available early next week and the House (more on Canadian Parliament) should vote shorty thereafter. Once the House has approved this bill it will be reviewed and finalized by the Canadian Senate.

Stay upto date on the process of this bill by following EmailKarma, and CAUCE on Twitter. I will be posting a full update once the final draft is made available from the Government’s web site.
