I am trying to figure out- We have Marketing Nurture email campaigns that are going to be starting soon and our Canadian sales would like to be apart of these sends.
A lot of the Canadian contacts have not double opted into these emails. If these emails are coming from an Account owner (see attachment), will this make a difference with the Canadian contacts and CASL compliance?
In CASL, consent can be explicit and implicit. Explicit consent is when someone shows interest and give you permission to send marketing emails. The implicit consent is when you have some kind of business relationship with the contact or it's really necessary to send email for some kind of fulfillment.
It doesn't really matter who is in the "From" address, but since you mentioned account owner, I'm guessing the target audience is your existing customers. So you should not have any issue. Though I would still suggest to run this through your compliance team once and get their approval.
Hope this helps.
Amit is roughly correct, however, I want to be clear on CASL: (not legal advice)
