Financial Crime Law Enforcement in Canada
About The EventThe Anti-Corruption Law Program (ACLP) continues its series of monthly webinars in 2021 that feature industry experts who share ideas and insight with their peers to help public and private sector policymakers combat corruption more effectively. On November 17th at 9:00 am PDT, join our group of distinguished panelists in a free webinar as they discuss the successes, failures and challenges surrounding the enforcement of financial crime – related laws in Canada. The Liberal Party of Canada, which was elected in September as Canada’s new federal government, included in its platform a commitment to establish “Canada’s first nation-wide agency to investigate financial crimes, including insider trading, organized crime, and money laundering”. What should this Agency look like and what are the constitutional and practical issues to be resolved before it can be established?
