Bill C-45 Criminal Code Admendments Affecting the
Liability of Corporations
by John Beckett
Manager, Health and Safety

Bill C-45 will hold a Corporation liable for crimes that are committed on behalf of or the benefit of the corporation by a senior person with policy or operational authority who:
1. committed the offence personally
2. had the necessary intent and directed the lower level employees who carried out the prohibited conduct;
3. was aware of or willfully blind to criminal activity carried out by lower level employees and failed to take remedial action.

A corporation can also be held liable for crimes of negligence where the acts or omissions of its representatives taken as a whole exhibit a "MARKED DEPARTURE FROM THE NORM" expected in the circumstances. Representatives include a director, partner, employee, member, agent, or contractor of the organization.
