Introduction to the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards & Consumer Complaints Procedure
Ad Standards is pleased to present an introductory session to the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards (Code), Canada's principal instrument of advertising regulation. It sets out the standards for acceptable advertising, and provides a mechanism for Ad Standards to review and adjudicate consumers' complaints. Essential for those new to the industry or a refresher for those with experience, this short, practical session will illustrate how the Code's key clauses are applied and top line this year’s consumer "hot buttons." Our presenters will also discuss amendments to the Code, including the Interpretation Guideline to Clause 7 (Testimonials), which requires online influencers to disclose any “material connection” between themselves and an advertiser.
