Designing an Anti-Corruption Compliance Program: A Guide for Canadian Businesses

Designing an Anti-Corruption Compliance Program: A Guide for Canadian Businesses

Designing an Anti-Corruption Compliance ProgramAll companies, large and small, are vulnerable to corruption, and the potential costs when they fail to combat corruption effectively in all its forms are considerable. The rapid development of rules of corporate governance in Canada and around the world is prompting companies to incorporate anti-corruption measures as part of their efforts to promote corporate sustainability, mitigate reputational risks, and protect the interests of their stakeholders.

Based on this, the resource guide, Designing An Anti-Corruption Program: A Guide for Canadian Businesses constitutes 13 chapters ranging from Jurisdictional Scope, risks assessments to anti-corruption in Latin America; all written by prominent business leaders and industry experts who represent a range of industries and sectors.

The Foreword for the e-Book has been written by Ms. Huguette Labelle, Former Chair of the Board of Directors, Transparency International wherein she states “overcoming corruption is a worldwide challenge and confronting them requires dedication, persistent effort, and a shared commitment by Governments, businesses, and civil society organizations.”
