Facing Charges of White Collar Crime in Vancouver?
In Canada —especially Vancouver— officials are cracking down on white collar crime across the board. Why has Vancouver drawn so much attention? According to a money laundering report ordered by the government, the amount laundered via British Columbia real estate is estimated to be up to $5 billion annually. Vancouver’s luxury properties have been particularly enticing and acted as the canary in the coal mine for authorities. The impact of these crimes accounts for a 5% bump in prices across the Lower Mainland, squeezing locals out of the market.
Officials are aware that regulation and enforcement are necessary, and have been pursuing white collar crimes with more vigour than in recent years. The spotlight on this criminal activity has certainly intensified and calls for accountability are getting louder. BC’s recent money laundering public inquiry is a sign that authorities are serious about cracking down on Vancouver’s “cottage industry” and widening the scope to include corporations and consultants, not just gangs.
