There Has Never Been a More Critical Time for Canadian Industry and Their Advisors to Stay Abreast of Global Economic Sanctions

  The American Conference Institute, in collaboration with The Canadian Institute, is to announce the 3rd Annual Canadian Forum on Economic Sanctions: the only dedicated forum on Sanctions compliance and enforcement in Canada. The updated and revamped 2017 program will feature full coverage and updates into all Canadian, US (OFAC), EU and other major sanctions regimes globally and their impact on Canadian financial institutions and businesses, as well as foreign subsidiaries and affiliates of US companies with a link to Canada. It will also provide unrivalled networking and benchmarking opportunities for sanctions compliance professionals seeking to stay abreast of the complex and ever-changing landscape for Canadian industry.   With the Trump Administration now beginning to fulfill some of its agenda with respect to Iran, Cuba and other programs, and changes afoot in Europe as Brexit gets underway, this timely conference will discuss the latest sanctions enforcement trends globally, and what Canadian industry needs to do in order to remain compliant but continue to maximize opportunities in high-growth markets. However, it will also offer enhanced coverage and deeper analysis of Canadian sanctions programs themselves, their oversight and compliance framework, and how best to deal with regulators in Ottawa with respect to sanctions compliance for a wide range of concerned industries. Come and join us for high level discussions on topics such as:
  • Russia: how do the Canadian and US regimes differ and how Canadian industry should navigate the programs?
  • Iran and Cuba: how can Canadian companies continue to seek out opportunities now that the US has changed tack?
  • Compliance and Screening: best practices for Canadian industry to remain compliant and build a comprehensive program for truly global sanctions compliance
