Welcome to Rainy River District School Board

What is CASL?

What is CASL?

CASL (Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation) is a new Act passed by the Government of Canada that came into effect on 1 July 2014. This legislation requires anyone who sends a commercial electronic message (CEM) to meet the following requirements:

  1. provide an unsubscribe option as part of the electronic message;
  2. provide identification information as set out in CASL about the sender

What this Means for You

As a parent or guardian of a RRDSB student this means that after July 1st, 2014 the RRDSB are prohibited from sending CEMs. Examples of CEMs that you may receive from the RRDSB can include:

  • School-based electronic messages to parents and community members with promotions, advertising or offers of sales of school pictures, field trips, fun fairs, year books, uniforms and equipment, cafeteria offerings, fundraising events, etc.
  • Central Departments/ Program Units that send e-newsletters or advertisements for general interest courses, ESL programs, permits, business partnerships or requests for proposals, etc.

As part of the RRDSB community, you may find this information useful and important or you may wish to opt-out from these messages. If you do not want to continue receiving any electronic messages from the Rainy River District School Board you must send an email to [email protected].

If you have opted-out and wish to begin receiving messages once again, please call our hotline at (807)274-9855 x4995 to arrange removal from our block list.
