Webinar: How Companies Should Prepare for the New Anti-Spam Law

The Canadian Government will be enacting a new Anti-Spam legislation that will dramatically change the way that organizations can send electronic messages (CEM’s), including email marketing messages and text messages. There are several key changes that organizations will need to make in how they send emails, how they manage customer data, and how sales staff can correspond with potential clients.

IAPD is offering an informative webinar on how you can prepare for these laws in both the USA and Canada – presented by Angela Rodenburgh, Redwood Plastics Marketing Director and Ladder Up’s President, and Michael Grammer, Barrister & Solicitor.

This presentation will include pertinent information regarding the new anti-spam laws as well as some tips to enhance your email marketing campaigns that is compliant with these new rules:

  • Provide an overview of the new Canada Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) law which can have a hefty $10 million fine
  • Explain how the Canadian regime is different from the United States’ CAN-SPAM Act
  • Detail best practices to grow your distribution list, tactics to increase click-through and open rates, as well as why you should care about mobile optimization.


This webinar will be presented on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. CDT
