Since CASL came into effect in July 2014, the CRTC has begun to take administrative actions with significant penalties – in the millions – levied against both “bad actors” and well-regarded Canadian companies. This Business 101 Session will provide important background to the legislation along with case studies to help avoid being the next company on the CRTC’s enforcement list.
