1 July 2014 will see the toughest law come in to play in Canada. The law is known as Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation and it even have dedicated website to show how serious the Canadians are when it comes to dealing with the ever increasing malware and spam. As an IT Specialist, I really love the idea. Its about time some of the laws must enforced. How can people go about phishing and sending unsolicited emails. The message to the spammers is loud and clear. It is a new dawn. You cannot do it inside the bounds of Canada. I know this is a drop in the ocean when it comes to reducing spam, but rest the world is watching with keen interest. 

  • Organisations can be fined for up to $10 000 000.00 for violating the law. 
  • Individuals violated can institute action against perpetrators and there is $200 fine per offence
