Part Three of McMillan’s R. vs Greater Sudbury Webinar

Events < 1 read

As a follow up to our first two webinars back in December 2023 and February 2024 where we considered the history, details and legal implications of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in R. v. Greater Sudbury, please join us for “Part 3” where Patrick Groom, Talia Gordner and Annik Forristal discuss regulatory offences, the due diligence defence and the practical implications of the decision for owners, contractors and consultants on the ground.

Discussion topics will include:

  • What is a regulatory offence and how is it prosecuted?
  • What should owners, contractors and consultants expect if an incident occurs?
  • When is a due diligence defence available in response to an offence charged under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act?
  • What do owners, contractors and consultants need to do to have a strong due diligence defence available in the wake of R v Sudbury?
  • What are some best practices for avoiding regulatory offence charges?
  • What are some best practices for managing and responding to a Ministry of Labour inspection or investigation?

The discussion will be interactive and will include an extensive Q&A period.

CPD: For legal practitioners, this program qualifies for up to 90 minutes of Substantive CPD (ON), 90 minutes of CPD (BC), and 90 minutes of CLE (QC).
