Economic Sanctions

Our lawyers regularly advise on Canada’s economic sanctions, which are maintained against a number of countries, as well as targeted sanctions against designated persons or entities. Canada also imposes economic sanctions against certain terrorists and terrorist organizations.

Under Canada’s economic sanctions, businesses may be prohibited from conducting transactions with certain countries or individuals. Our lawyers are on top of the ever-changing geopolitical security landscape and the related legislative steps taken by the Government of Canada in response to such developments through the implementation and removal of economic sanctions.

We regularly assist both Canadian and international businesses, financial institutions, and individuals with internal investigations when red flags appear, and we provide advice on compliance in these areas. We have significant experience in the design and implementation of compliance programs, including policies, procedures, employee training, and internal control mechanisms. Where breaches occur, we work closely with our clients in making voluntary disclosures and in engaging with the ensuing investigations conducted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and Global Affairs Canada.
