Expanding Canada’s Toolkit to address corporate wrongdoing

Consultation Dates: Sep 25, 2017 – Nov 17, 2017

The input provided by Canadians, the private sector and other stakeholders will help make the regime more effective and ensure that it is achieving its objectives. This consultation is also an opportunity to consider the possibility of introducing Canadian deferred prosecution agreements which would be negotiated between an accused and the prosecutor, as an additional tool for prosecutors to use to hold offenders to account and deter corporate wrongdoing. They could increase detection of wrongdoing through self-reporting, and help improve corporate culture and compliance. Input from the consultation will help ensure the Government has effective mechanisms in place to continue addressing corporate wrongdoing in an evolving marketplace.
