CASL – Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation

What is CASL?

Canada鈥檚 Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) came into effect on July 1, 2014. It聽prohibits the sending of any type of electronic message that is commercial in nature unless the recipient has already provided consent.

At 好色tv, Commercial Electronic Messages include:

  • School newsletters
  • All fundraising (hot lunch, pizza day, school fairs/BBQs)
  • Field Trips
  • Year Books
  • Spirit Wear
  • Student Photos, etc.

Faxes, voicemails, and interactive two-way voice communications (eg. phone calls) between individuals are excluded from the definition of electronic address.

好色tv Strives to be a Steward of the Earth

好色tv strives to be a steward of the Earth and aims to reduce the use of paper whenever possible. It also recognizes the importance of communicating with its parent/guardian community in a prompt and efficient manner that is appreciated by today鈥檚 21st century parents.聽 When electronic communication methods are appropriate, we must comply with CASL.

Unsubscribing to CASL Messages

Should you choose not to receive emails of a commercial nature, please know that you will continue to receive general school information, attendance and emergency emails.

Parents can unsubscribe from receiving commercial announcements by clicking on the 鈥渦nsubscribe鈥 link located in the e-mail they received.

Questions or Concerns?

When parents submit their contact information to the school and Board at the beginning of a new school year, or upon registration, consent to receive related commercial messages is collected.

If you have any questions about CASL and/or commercial electronic messages, please contact your child鈥檚 school office or e-mail communications@ycdsb.ca.
