The Government of Canada has announced that a new version of the Guide to Canada’s Export Controls (the “Guide”) will come into effect on August 11, 2017. The Guide lists the goods and technology subject to export and technology transfer controls.
In recent years, Canada has significantly expanded its multilateral and unilateral trade control measures. Broader scope and increased enforcement in the areas of economic sanctions, export and technology transfer controls, and defence trade controls have raised the stakes for Canadians engaged in cross-border activities. Enforcement and reputational risk is higher than ever and it is critical for any Canadian company doing business abroad to ensure it has internal controls in place to mitigate the growing risk exposure.
