Canada Imposes Sanctions on Venezuela Regime
Canada to impose sanctions on 40 Venezuelans, including President Nicolas Maduro

OTTAWA -- "In support of the people of Venezuela," Canada has announced sanctions on key figures in the Maduro regime "to send a clear message that their anti-democratic behaviour has consequences."

“Canada will not stand by silently as the Government of Venezuela robs its people of their fundamental democratic rights," said Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland. "Today’s announcement of sanctions against the Maduro regime underscores our commitment to defending democracy and human rights around the world. Canada stands in solidarity with the people of Venezuela as they struggle to restore democracy in their country.”

Freeland announced sanctions against those she said were responsible for the deterioration of democracy in Venezuela. "The measures are consistent with Canadian principles and values and aim to maintain pressure on the Government of Venezuela to restore constitutional order and respect the democratic rights of its people," Canada's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

"Under the Special Economic Measures Act, Canada is imposing targeted sanctions against 40 Venezuelan officials and individuals who have played a key role in undermining the security, stability and integrity of democratic institutions of Venezuela," said the Ministry.

"These decisive actions are in response to the Government of Venezuela’s deepening descent into dictatorship. By imposing sanctions on the Maduro regime, Canada demonstrates its strong commitment to the return of democracy in Venezuela."

The Special Economic Measures (Venezuela) Regulations impose asset freezes and dealings prohibitions on the targeted individuals by prohibiting persons in Canada and Canadians outside Canada from dealing in any property of these individuals or providing financial or related services to them.
