Collaboration Center Client Email Notifications – Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)
Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) is a law that regulates the use of email, text messages and other
forms of electronic messages for marketing purposes, as well as the installation of computer programs
and applications (Apps).
To be compliant with CASL, the agent’s mailing address has been added to the signature block at the bottom of the Client email notifications and Welcome emails. The address displayed is the agent’s brokerage’s address. Below is a sample of the updated signature block.
