Stay Informed & Avoid Spam


Dear Community member(s),

You now receive occasional emails from PACC because some time in the past you subscribed to our communication services, or gave us the go-ahead or opted in to receive information from PACC about industry news, standards, guidelines, opportunities, precedents, and publications. Even if you did not initiate contact, you might receive email from PACC — and we are careful to ensure that that, too, complies with current anti-spam legislation.

To continue to stay up-to-date about the issues, activities and achievements relevant to Canadians interested in or affected by information privacy and access to information, especially those in Canada’s broad access and privacy community, simply click this link to express your consent and ensure uninterrupted communications.

Our goal is to bring you the best information possible about data privacy, access, governance and information risk management.

Remember to add PACC to your address book. And remember that you may Contact Us at any time to withdraw your consent or change your subscription preferences.

A few key points about CASL:

  • The Anti-Spam law was developed to stem the tide of spam and malware and imposes significant penalties for individuals, organizations, and the directors and officers of organizations
  • Emails must include the sender’s contact information and, if the message is being sent on someone else’s behalf, their identity and contact information as well
  • Emails must include a clear and simple mechanism to opt out or unsubscribe, and that must remain available for 60 days after the message is sent. (PACC has always provided very clear and simple opt out or unsubscribe mechanisms. If in doubt, opting out can be accomplished with a (polite) request to any of our contact points.)

Stay in Touch

As always, we value your feedback and guidance. If there are any areas of interest you would like to pursue to improve Canada’s privacy and access-to-information landscape, please feel free to contact us and let us know.
