Under Canadian law for a fraud to be committed, it requires that a dishonest act either by deceit, falsehoods or other fraudulent means that caused an actual economic loss must occur. Section 380(1) of the Criminal Code provides:

Every one who, by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means, whether or not it is a false pretence within the meaning of this Act, defrauds the public or any person, whether ascertained or not, of any property, money or valuable security or any service, is guilty of an indictable offence. 

In Canada, fraud charges are classified as either Fraud Under $5000 or Fraud Over $5000. Fraud charges can encompass a wide range of activities that could appear to be legal. Depending on the circumstances, fraud charges may be very technical and complex offences that can be complicated to both prove and defend.

There are circumstances where innocent people, through personal association, are accused of being involved in fraudulent activity.
