Canada’s new Anti-Spam Law comes into force on July 1, 2014 and will cover all electronic messages including:  email, social networking accounts and text messages – plus much more.

What does it mean for you as a business owner when communicating with current and potential clients?  What are the guidelines and penalties? What do you need to know and how should you prepare?”

Debbie Lapointe is a small business owner who began educating herself on the Canadian Government’s new Anti-Spam law a year ago, when  the spam received in her inbox became a daily source of frustration.  She is not associated with the new Anti-Spam program, but happily shares what she’s learned with other business owners, who will be impacted by the changes.
