Spam is a common name for unwanted electronic communication, such as unsolicited emails. Frequently, spam is just the electronic equivalent of junk mail, but it can be used for more sinister purposes, such as phishing.

While online marketing can be a powerful tool to reach customers, businesses must be sure that their marketing practices comply with the law.

Business owners with questions about protecting themselves should familiarize themselves with Canada's anti-spam legislation.
