The Anti-Corruption Law Program is pleased to announce a four-part webinar series to explore the key recommendations arising from the Report of the Commission of Inquiry into Money Laundering in British Columbia (Cullen Commission Report). The 1,800-page Cullen Commission Report was released in June 2022, and represents a watershed moment for anti-corruption law reform efforts in Canada.
The Cullen Commission heard from 199 witnesses, received thousands of exhibits plus written submissions, sponsored research, and archived live recordings of oral evidence. This four-part Webinar Series is designed to help participants to distill the key issues raised at the Commission and to evaluate its recommendations so that organizations and individuals can effectively address and combat anti-corruption within their own operations and activities in Canada and abroad. Each webinar panel will feature nationally and internationally-recognized anti-corruption and anti-money laundering experts.
Session 3: Cullen Commission Inquiry: Unidentified Wealth Orders and the Future of Civil Forfeiture
This webinar will explore the potential to combat money laundering by deploying new legal tools such as Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs) and enhanced civil forfeiture proceedings through the expanded capacity of the BC Civil Forfeiture Office.
This event qualifies for 2 CPD credits from the Law Society of British Columbia.
This webinar series is being presented by the Anti-Corruption Law Program, which is a joint continuing professional educational initiative of the Centre for Business Law at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Transparency International - Canada Chapter, and the Vancouver Anti-Corruption Institute at the International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy, also at UBC.
