BREAKING NEWS: C-28 Moving on up!

Breaking News – The Canadian House of Commons just voted C-28 – Canada’s Anti-Spam bill out of the house of commons and into the Senate.

Minister of Industry Tony Clement had this to say moments after the vote:

* An “on division” vote means that it was a Voice vote and not recorded vote.

Next up on C-28’s progress: a trip to the Senate for two readings, a committee review, and a third and final vote before it is law.

  1. What will this bill mean for marketers? Is it very similar to CAN-SPAM?

    • Hi Lora,

      This bill is similar in many ways to CAN-SPAM but different in the way that is requires consent to email individuals (opt-in), covers all forms of Commercial Electronic Messaging and deals with Malware/Spyware and installed software.

      Thindata 1:1, Return Path, CAUCE and Kris Klein Law firm published a guide explaining the similarities and key differences of the bill – you can find it here: http://www.thindata.com/aboutus/resourcecenter/FISA.

      Cheers,
      Matt
