CASL Compliance

We would like to, from time to time, use your email address to send Commercial Electronic Messages (CEMs) that we think would be of particular interest to you. For example, messages regarding:

  • Information about upcoming events
  • Calls for presentations
  • Reminders for registration rate increase (ie: Supersaver, Earlybird)
  • Agenda updates
  • Requests to participate in related research

We will make every reasonable effort to minimize these communications, and duplication. We will also make every reasonable effort to ensure the CEMs sent to you will be related to subject matter that could apply to your role(s) within your organization. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact.

To do so, each CEM sent will include an "unsubscribe" mechanism that you can leverage. At anytime, if you feel we are NOT meeting our promises and obligations with respect to CASL, please contact Chris Lutz immediately at (613) 226-8317 or

Yes, I agree / Oui je suis d'accord
No, I do not agree / Non, je ne suis pas d'accord
