Canadian Anti-Spam Bill

The anti-spam bill “Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act” (FISA) has been put back on the table in the Canadian House of Commons for discussion. Only a few more steps to go until we get there.

What’s happened so far (The long road):

  • May 2004 – IC establishes Task Force on Spam
  • May 2005 – Task Force presents final report to IC
  • April 24, 2009 – Bill C-27, the Electronic Commerce Protection Act (FISA) introduced in the HoC
  • November 30, 2009: passed House with unanimous support; amended as a result of consultation and committee meetings
  • December 15, 2009: passed 2nd reading in Senate
  • December 30, 2009: Parliament prorogued
  • May 25, 2010 – C-27 reintroduced as the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act (C-28)
  • June 17, 2010 – HoC rises for summer, still awaiting 2nd reading

Next steps:

  • Second reading – debate and vote – referred to Committee
  • HoC Committee – debate, edits and vote
  • Third reading, debate and vote in the House – referred to Senate
  • Senate reading – #1 and 2 – debate, vote – referred to Committee
