The Federal government’s legislation to control spam and other ills of the electronic age with An Act to promote the efficiency and adaptability of the Canadian economy by regulating certain activities that discourage reliance on electronic means of carrying out commercial activities, and to amend the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Act, the Competition Act, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and the Telecommunications Act, was passed in mid-December, 2010. This newly passed legislation was Bill C-28, otherwise known as the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act (“FISA”) for short. It is generally expected to be proclaimed in force within 7-8 months. The delayed timing is intended to allow companies to accommodate the requirements of FISA into their operations and prepare for compliance. But there is no indication yet whether FISA will be proclaimed in force in full or in part.
