Summary

IMETS, started in 2003, were to be integrated teams of experienced RCMP investigators with capital markets fraud experience, legal advisors from the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) and civilians with specialist expertise. Teams in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver were to conduct investigations with national oversight. Certain RCMP HR policies were to be changed to better attract and retain expertise. The essence of the original IMET concept was sound. The problem was in implementation. IMET investigation results have been disappointing to many, though there continues to be progress on existing cases. The preventative activities through the Joint Securities Intelligence Units (JSIU) are a success. Issues of timely results are partly a problem of unrealistic expectations, partly due to differences in Canada’s legal framework compared to other jurisdictions that are unlikely to change soon, and partly due to issues within the RCMP and its partners. IMET can improve within the current legal framework.
