RE/MAX CROSSROADS RULES & REGULATIONS BULLETIN: Canada's New Anti-Spam Legislation
REALTORS® face new obligations as a result of FINTRAC changes that came into effect February 1, 2014 and from Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation that comes into force on July 1, 2014.
Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) is a law that regulates how you can send email, text messages and other forms of electronic messages, and how you can use certain applications (Apps) for marketing purposes. The federal government passed the law in an effort to reduce spam, malware, and related internet threats.
The Canadian Real Estate Association’s Vice-President of Government and Public Relations Randall McCauley and Director of External Relations David Salvatore will be providing an informative presentation on the fundamentals of these new requirements, with tips on how REALTORS® can more easily comply.
You can select one of these 4 sessions to attend:
· Monday, June 9, 2014 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm OR 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
· Tuesday, June 10, 2014 9:00 am - 10:00 am OR 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
These in-class sessions are 1-hour long, 1 CE credit and costs $5.65 (HST incl.).
Registration form can be obtained from TREB’s Education Dept.
If you are unable to attend any of the four sessions listed above, you may want to attend the complimentary webinar on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. You can find the registration link by CLICKING HERE
We highly recommend ALL REALTORS to attend the session in person or watch the online webinar to keep up-to-date with the latest FINTRAC / Anti-Spam requirements and how it affects your real estate business. CASL contains significant penalties for non-compliance.
