Read Probe International’s submission to the Government of Canada’s invitation to Canadians for their views on potential enhancements to the Integrity Regime and on considerations regarding the possible adoption of a deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) regime in Canada. Probe International’s response: No DPAs. Learn why.
It is Probe International’s view that Canada should not adopt DPAs and that the Integrity Regime should be modified. The federal government should prosecute individuals within the firms that have committed the crimes, disgorge the companies of ill-gotten gains, fine the companies to give shareholders an incentive to get rid of corrupt and incompetent management and directors, and ramp up enforcement capabilities to investigate, charge and prosecute guilty individuals and corporations.
