Global Affairs Canada publishes a consolidated list of economic sanctions

Global Affairs Canada announced the publication of the Consolidated Special Economic Measures Act Sanctions List. The list contains the individuals and entities named in the schedules of sanctions regulations made under the Special Economic Measures Act.

The consolidated list is one of the commitments the government made in July in response to recommendations made by the House of Commons Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development in its review of the Special Economic Measures Act and the Freezing Assets of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act.

The list is easily accessible and seeks to assist those responsible for implementing and enforcing sanctions in Canada.

Global Affairs warns that the prohibitions may not apply to each individual or entity in the same way, and each applicable sanctions regulation specifies the prohibitions that apply to a particular individual or entity. Users seeking accurate information on which provisions apply to a specific individual or entity must therefore refer to the relevant regulation.

The list is available on Global Affairs Canada's Canadian Economic Sanctions website.

It should be noted that this list does not include sanctions applied under the United Nations Act, so those still have to be researched separately.
