Resolution #101 : Economic crimes (Official French version)
In Québec, most of the investigations on economic crimes led by the Sûreté du Québec originate from requests from the government or from government organizations. This leaves little room for complaints coming from the private sector. It doesn't have to be like this since the Minister of Justice has the power to direct the Director of Public Prosecutions to allow, in the public interest, private criminal prosecutions (entirely supported by the plaintiff) to proceed in parallel with public prosecutions. A CPQ government will instruct the Director of Public Prosecutions to allow private sector criminal prosecutions for suspected economic crimes.
