Why is the LTSA asking me to opt-in to receive email communications?

Last modified on April 27, 2016

Commencing July 1, 2014, Canada's new Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) takes effect. It is designed to prohibit, through enforcement and penalties, unsolicited or misleading commercial electronic messages. CASL prohibits the sending of a commercial electronic message unless:

  1. The person to whom the commercial electronic message is sent has consented to receiving it; and
  2. The commercial electronic message complies with prescribed formalities.

In order to comply with this legislation, the LTSA is asking you to formally provide your consent to receive certain email communications from the LTSA. Even if you currently receive Land Title Matters email communications from the LTSA, you must act to formally opt in to reconfirm your consent and select from the new options. The process to consent differs depending on whether you have a myLTSA account or not. Certain myLTSA users may also automatically receive communications by email about important land title and survey practice and policy changes that directly relate to their profession and/or use of myLTSA.
