CASL and Privacy Considerations: What Non-Profits Need to Know

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) has been called the toughest of its kind in the world. Although much of the information on CASL is targeted at for-profit businesses, CASL has significant implications for charities and non-profits. The same is often true of privacy laws, including the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). As a result, many charities and non-profits want a clearer understanding of how CASL and privacy laws affect their fundraising activities,  donor communications, and general practices.

On June 28, Kristél Kriel will present “CASL and Privacy Considerations: What Non-Profits Need to Know.”

In this complimentary breakfast session, held as part of a workshop series hosted by the United Way of Regina for non-profits, participants will learn what anti-spam and privacy laws mean for charities and non-profits, and get the tools you need to comply.

The session will include:

  • A review of CASL and how it applies to charities and non-profits
  • A review of what the July 1, 2017 CASL deadline means for charities and non-profits
  • An overview of privacy laws and how they apply to charities and non-profits
  • 10 key privacy principles for charities and non-profits
  • Tools to help charities and non-profits comply with their anti-spam and privacy obligations
