We are pleased to announce the first 2021 event in the Anti-Corruption Law Program (ACLP) public education series – a morning Zoom seminar on the topic of “Integrity and Anti-Corruption for SMEs – Getting it Right”.
This Seminar will provide an opportunity for participants to explore with our experienced panel the issues that confront small and medium-sized enterprises that seek to grow their market share and “do the right thing” — conduct business with integrity, help fight corruption, and comply with applicable anti-corruption laws. Our panelists bring diverse perspectives to the discussion, and will address such questions as:
- How can Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) adopt anti-corruption measures that are cost–effective and proportional to their own unique risk profile?
- How relevant are international standards and best practices (such as US Department of Justice Guidelines) to the creation and operation of compliance programs in Canada? Can the Department of Justice Guidelines be adapted to the needs and overhead budgets of SMEs in Canada?
- What unique characteristics of SMEs can be leveraged to compensate for lacking the resources of larger firms, such as in-house lawyers and compliance departments?
