ONN makes Regulations Submission for small and mid-size nonprofits
February 4, 2013: ONN has made a submission to Industry Canada calling for registered charities and nonprofits to be exempted in the Electronic Commerce Protection Regulations from Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL).
We noted that the sector’s community-building activities have been caught up in CASL, which will prevent nonprofits from reaching out into communities and from undertaking much of its public benefit work. Noncompliance with the legislation will expose organizations and their directors to serious fines and private actions.
