Canadian Anti Spam Law (CASL)
With CASL starting up right around the corner, July 1, I wanted to see how y'all were handling different aspects of the law. As I know it is pretty explicit that the best route to go is with expressed consent, however I was not sure how that effected contacting prospects. As (1) you don't have a prior business relationship (2) you don't have any sort of consent, implied or expressed (3) you probably don't have someone in common to introduce you. So how, legally, would you contact prospects?
I looked all over the below sites and could not find anything:
Canada's Law on Spam and Other Electronic Threats -> http://fightspam.gc.ca/eic/site/030.nsf/eng/home
Full Text of CASL -> http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/E-1.6/index.html
Government of Canada Introduces CASL -> https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/ecic-ceac.nsf/eng/gv00521.html
CRTC 3 Simple Rules of CASL -> http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/casl-lcap.htm
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much!
