Economic Sanctions Against Russia: What Does That Mean for Canadian Companies?
Speaker, I.E. Canada Webinar, December 12, 2014
Economic sanctions against Russia are presenting significant challenges for Canadian firms doing business abroad, including those who are not normally active in that region. Canada has been among the most aggressive and outspoken countries when it comes to dealings with Russia - it was one of the first governments to threaten sanctions against Russia for interference in Ukraine and it maintains one of the longest blacklists. Canadian firms must also be aware of and comply witht the sanctions and export contrils imposed by the United States and other governments. Understanding and mitigating these compliance and reputational risks in international operations is an important competitive advantage for exporters. This practical webinar covered the critical components of the economic sanctions regime, addressed potential traps for the unwary, and discussed effective risk mitigation and compliance strategies.
