Checkbox vs clicking link to opt-in?

I'm working on improving our opt-in process and I understand that the best practice (I think) is to have a checkbox on landing pages for people to opt-in to get email communications.

 

However, a colleague says it's just fine for people to click a link and clicking the link (with something like "for more information, click here") counts as an opt-in.

Is anyone familiar with email compliance laws internationally?

 

Does this hold up in Europe/Canada?

 

Or do I need to add a checkbox for people to explicitly opt in, for countries requiring double opt-in?

 

Thanks,

 

Katharine
