Delay in the Implementation of the CASL Private Right of Action
For the second time in recent days, the implementation of a key (and much hyped) regulatory change has been delayed. On June 7, 2017, the federal government announced it was suspending the implementation of CASL’s private right of action provisions, which were due to come into force on July 1, 2017. As we have mentioned in previous Bulletins, the provisions create a private right of action for individuals alleging they have been affected by a CASL contravention, with the possibility of class actions a particular concern.
