Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation {CASL)

POV makes every effort to follow good digital marketing practice and to respect your privacy when we send out POV Enews. We do this by ensuring:

  • That we provide our contact information on every email.
  • That we provide an easy Unsubscribe link on every email.
  • That we provide our charitable registration number on the footer at the bottom of our emails.
  • That you have given us your express consent to receive emails or that we have your implied consent because we have a relationship with you (if, for example, you recently made a donation or bought a ticket).

As of July 1, 2014, Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation regulates the sending of commercial electronic messages (CEMs) in Canada. The regulations include an exemption for CEMs sent by or on behalf of a registered charity, where the primary purpose of the message is to raise funds for the organization.

The CRTC has confirmed that exempt messages include emails that:

  • solicit donations.
  • promote fundraising events
  • promote events such as theatrical productions or concerts, where the proceeds from ticket sales flow to the charity.

As well, emails that provide news about the charity are not considered to be commercial messages and do not fall under CASL.

This means that most electronic messages sent by Registered Charities such as Pacific Opera Victoria are exempt from CASL and do not require consent. But, as noted above, POV ensures we have implied or express consent to email to you, and we make it easy for you to opt out of receiving emails.
