Anti-Spam Legislation


See: The Ontario Non Profit Network Info on Anti-Spam Legislation

CASL requires that a message with a commercial purpose be sent only to individuals who have:

1. Agreed to receive messages (CASL legislation sets out elements of the forms of consent)

2. An existing relationship with the organization (e.g. previously bought event tickets, are a client, etc.) OR

3. Made an inquiry to the organization (e.g. asked about the summer soccer program).

Since most members of TAN have a past relationship with their members, then they do not need to ask permission to communicate with them by email. New member registration/application forms should ask permission to do this.
