Last summer, Canada’s anti-spam legislation — CASL — came into force with a flurry. Various departments, including IT, marketing and HR, were kept busy trying to ensure their organizations didn’t run afoul of rules that restrict how businesses can communicate with each other and the public via email and text.

On Jan. 15, 2015, sections of the act came into force related to the unsolicited installation of computer programs or software, so it looks like there’s still more work to be done.
