There are two very important “beginning and ending” timelines that all registered charities and not-for-profit organizations need to keep in mind.
- 1. July 2, 2014: Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation comes into force and consent to send commercial electronic messages must be obtained; and
- 2. July 1, 2017: the transition period for implied consent to receiving commercial electronic messages ends.
In between? There are a number of other important timelines to observe. See the Timelines Checklist for help with this.
