Event Details

Grub in The Hub: Canada's Anti-Spam Law: Practicing Safe Email

Gowlings’ technology lawyer, Paul Armitage, will tell you what you need to know about CASL—what it is all about and how to send Commercial Electronic Messages (CEMs) without being fined or sued.  Topics will include types of consent, when you do and do not need expressed consent, how to prove you have consent if the Government comes knocking, and more.  Leads prospecting and social media marketing will also be discussed, so bring your burning questions about CASL. This seminar will be as interactive as people make it!
