The changing nature of fraud in Canada - ARCHIVED

Articles and reports: 85-002-X19980048274


This Juristat provides a statistical profile of fraud in Canada. It examines trends in fraud offences, characteristics of incidents and offenders, as well as certain adult court and sentencing information. These data suggest that the nature of fraud offences has changed considerably over the years; however, official police and court data are limited sources of information in some respects. As a result, additional information from qualitative studies is used to supplement the data in order to provide context to the overall issue of fraud and certain aspects of “white collar” crime.
