Government suspends CASL private right of action, but fines can still be issued

2017-06-26

On June 7, the federal government announced that it is suspending the implementation of the private right of action under Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL). The move was in response to concerns raised by Canadian businesses, charities and the not-for-profit sector.

The suspended provisions of CASL were scheduled to come into force on July 1, 2017 and would have allowed any interested person to file lawsuits for alleged violations of the legislation.

The government has not stated how long this indefinite suspension will last. The legislation will be submitted to a parliamentary committee for review.
