Canada is now a “sanctions hawk”; no longer can Canadian trade controls be considered less aggressive. This causes significant compliance and enforcement challenges for Canadian, as well as US companies, operating in Canada.
Those firms that fail to address fundamental differences in the substance, administration, and enforcement of trade controls north of the border are exposing themselves to significant financial and reputational consequences. Join us for a webinar that will cover the most important developments in Canadian economic sanctions and export and technology transfer controls and what to watch for in 2019. Other topics covered in depth: Canada’s expanding use of target list-based sanctions, including under its new Magnitsky Law, progress, or lack thereof, on long-awaited changes in the administration and enforcement of Canada’s economic sanctions, significant amendments to the Canadian export control regime under Bill C-47, including new controls over “brokering” outside of Canada and much more!
This webinar is designed for Canadian companies or governments who deal with US companies or produce their products using US-origin goods or US technology. Companies located in the US may find this webinar to be of interest and helpful in understanding these potential conflicts and how their Canadian business partners, subsidiaries, parents, or affiliates must balance the conflicting export rules.
This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from John Boscariol who is a recognized expert on compliance and enforcement matters with respect to export controls over goods, technology and services, military and defense controls and related programs, economic sanctions, blocking orders regarding foreign extraterritorial measures, Canada’s Controlled Goods Program, government contracts, and other trade controls and national security measures. He also advises both private and public sector clients on the application of international trade and investment protection agreements and other international trade matters.
Webinar participants are invited to submit questions during the webinar. The final 30 minutes of the webinar will be allotted to answering attendees’ questions. Each registrant will receive a copy of the presentation, certificate of completion, and access to the webinar recording.
