CASL Private Right of Action Delayed (Indefinitely)

Print Friendly

The Government of Canada has repealed the coming into force of the private right of action for violations of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). The Government has listened to concerns raised by businesses, charities and the not-for-profit sector about the implementation of CASL, which would have permitted individuals to sue for violations of the law.

The Government has also acknowledged that “businesses, charities and non-profit groups should not have to bear the burden of unnecessary red tape and costs to comply with the legislation” and has asked a Parliamentary Committee to review the legislation.
