Anti-spam legislation unanimously passed by House of Commons

Tony Clement, Minister of Industry, is pleased to announce that the proposed Electronic Commerce Protection Act has passed third reading unanimously in the House of Commons and is proceeding to the Senate as the next step in the legislative process. The legislation, which is meant to deter the most damaging and deceptive forms of spam and other online threats and create a safer online marketplace for both individuals and businesses, will help to grow online commerce in Canada.

“Our government took action through this legislation to reduce a considerable threat to electronic commerce in this country. This bill will make Canada a leader in the digital economy by providing a safer marketplace,” said Clement. “Now that the House of Commons has unanimously passed this bill, our hope and expectation is that the Senate will act on this legislation immediately to ensure protection for Canadian consumers.”
