Today the CRTC issued its first fine under CASL.
In a Notice of Violation issued against Compu-Finder, which includes a penalty of $1.1 million, for four violations of Canada’s anti-spam law. The CRTC alleges Compu-Finder sent commercial emails without consent, as well as messages in which the unsubscribe mechanisms did not function properly.
Apparently, Compu-Trainer is a Quebec based organization in the business of providing various corporate training courses. It seems email solicitation was a primary means of seeking business.
