The federal government’s proposed anti-spam and anti-spyware legislation (formerly known as Bill C-27) is expected to be fast-tracked once Parliament gets back to business in March. The purpose of this session will be to provide a practical overview of the anti-spam provisions in Bill C-27 as passed by the House of Commons in November. Particular emphasis will be placed on:
- the breadth of the anti-spam regime;
- the “compliance” challenges that legitimate enterprises will face;
- the “preparatory” work enterprises should consider doing now; and
- the implications of the new enforcement regime on legitimate enterprises and “spammers”.
