Developments in anti-corruption enforcement and compliance in Canada have been fast and furious over the past 18 months. Recent amendments to the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act, increased RCMP enforcement and high profile investigations, Canada’s first jail sentence under the CFPOA, new Canadian reporting requirements for extractive industries, and whistleblower bounties under the US FCPA have brought these issues front and centre for directors and officers in the Canadian business community. McCarthy Tétrault cordially invites you to attend a breakfast conference on anti-corruption laws and their implications for companies doing business in Canada and abroad. John Boscariol, and Marc-Alexandre Hudon will address the following topics in their presentations: ¬ Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act: background, analysis and recent developments, ¬ Criminal liability of corporate officers and directors for corrupt acts committed abroad, ¬ Doing business abroad and guarding against corruption-related risks: tips and advice, ¬ Practical considerations in dealings with foreign public officials, ¬ Key anti-corruption considerations in M&A, IPO, private equity, joint venture and credit financing transactions, ¬ International trends involving laws aimed at preventing the corruption of foreign public officials.
