Startup Canada Podcast: Fighting corruption and bribery for small business

startup canada

Is your business ready to go global? If you’re about to make the leap into foreign markets, it’s essential to understand how to recognize, avoid and plan around corruption and bribery.

“When you’re operating in some of these countries you’ll be faced with ethical dilemmas on a day to day basis.”

Justin Taylor is the senior corporate affairs analyst at Export Development Canada (EDC). He leads anti-corruption due diligence and reputational risk analysis for transactions supported by EDC. As December 9 was Anti-Corruption Day, Taylor and his team are raising awareness around the risks Canadian businesses face when doing business abroad.

Every day, Taylor works with companies who are facing issues to help them understand their anti-corruption and compliance practices and the steps they’re taking to address business integrity issues in challenging markets.

In this week’s podcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to Taylor about his role in Canada’s fight against corruption and bribery, and how he’s protecting small businesses.
