Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)

On July 1, 2014, Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL) came into effect. Under the legislation, Board staff and Trustees must not send commercial electronic messages (CEMs) that encourage recipients to participate in any commercial activity, even if it is not-for-profit, unless they have the recipient’s prior consent.  

The Upper Grand District School Board requires your consent to send any electronic messages which promote, advertise or offer for sale anything including school pictures, field trips, yearbooks, books, uniforms, food programs, event tickets or entry fees, fundraising events or items, or similar events or offers to sell goods and services.

Thank you.
