Recently, the OECD Working Group on Bribery released this Phase 4 report on Canada’s implementation of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. The Phase 4 report “looks at the evaluated country’s particular challenges and positive achievements [and] also explores issues such as detection, enforcement, corporate liability and international cooperation, as well as covering unresolved issues from prior reports.”
The report of course is not written by computers, but real human beings and in the case of Canada’s Phase 4 report the lead examiners were prosecutors and ministry of justice officials from Austria and New Zealand. For starters, should Canada really care what prosecutors and justice officials from Austria and New Zealand have to say about Canadian law enforcement?
In any event, like most other OECD Working Group on Bribery country reports, Canada is criticized how not bringing more enforcement actions.
