CRTC, New Zealand for anti-spam agreement
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has signed a memorandum of understanding with the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs intended to combat unsolicited commercial electronic messages, commonly known as spam. The agreement will promote cooperation in enforcing the anti-spam laws of both countries through the sharing of information.
"This agreement demonstrates our ongoing commitment to work closely with partners to fight unlawful communications and protect Canadians from spam and the threat of embedded malware," said Jean-Pierre Blais, chairman and CEO of the CRTC. "Partnering with agencies like New Zealand's Department of Internal Affairs will help reduce the number of unsolicited commercial messages Canadians receive in the future."
