Services

Complying with Canadian advertising laws is increasingly challenging for companies and individuals.  Advertising in Canada is highly regulated and hurdles include increased enforcement, new legislation (e.g., Canada’s anti-spam law – CASL) and new technology and social media sites’ terms of use.

I help clients practically navigate Canada’s advertising and marketing laws and offer Canadian advertising law services in relation to print, online, new media, social media and e-mail marketing.

My services include advice in relation to: anti-spam law (CASL); Competition Bureau investigations and complaints; the general misleading advertising provisions of the Competition Act; compliance programs and policies; Internet, new media and social media advertising and marketing; provincial consumer protection legislation; seeking Competition Bureau written opinions; promotional contests; and sales and promotions.
