White-collar crimes are financially motivated, non-violent, criminal acts often committed by a company, its workers or government employees. White-collar crimes include offences such as embezzlement, employee theft, tax evasion, securities fraud, money laundering, counterfeiting, cybercrime, identity theft, Ponzi schemes, bribery, and mortgage fraud. White-collar crime investigations often involve forensic audits and accountants, search warrants, and thousands of pages of disclosure. Alberta Justice has a specialized branch dedicated specifically to complex economic-crime matters.
