On 23 October 2014, the Governor General of Canada introduced the Special Economic Measures (South Sudan) Regulations, by which it applied restrictive measures against two South Sudanese rebel leaders, Marial Chanuong and Peter Gadet.

The restrictive measures prohibit on any person in Canada and any Canadian national from providing financial or related services to the designated persons or to deal in any property or make any goods available to a designated person.
