Global Compliance: Canada

This publication, the first of Ethisphere’s Global Compliance series, is dedicated to highlighting some of the trends in ethics and compliance that Canadian-headquartered companies and Canadian-based ethics and compliance officers are experiencing in their day-to-day work. BELA member companies featured in this publication include: Barrick Gold, BMO, JLL, and SNC-Lavalin.

The ethics and compliance challenges of a Canadian chief compliance officer today are not dissimilar from those of an American or European chief compliance officer. Focus areas such as building strong anti-corruption programs, conducting fair investigations (and communicating progress in the right way to those who use the reporting channels), establishing and measuring a strong culture of ethics and integrity, and so forth are all universal areas of interest for chief compliance officers today, globally. And many of those topics are in fact addressed here from Canadian compliance leaders.
