UHN Newsletters and Mailing Lists

​​​​​​​​'CASL' The New Canadian Anti-Spam Law​

A new Canadian law came into force on July 1, 2014 regulating commercial electronic messaging. Known as Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation ('CASL'), it is widely considered the toughest law of its kind in the world. Unless one of the exclusion applies to a commercial electronic message ('CEM'), CASL requires express or implied consent in order to send CEM.

What is UHN doing to comply?

UHN is asking all departments to examine outgoing email traffic to identify high-risk areas and put compliance measures in place.

Due to the broad nature of this definition, UHN is focusing initially on two categories of emails:

  1. Emails being sent with the purpose of advertising, promoting, licensing or selling goods, services or business opportunities where the goods, services or business opportunities are not free; and
  2. Mass emails which may have a commercial aspect
