Feb 07, 2018

On February 7, 2018, the Canadian Department of Finance (the Department) released a consultation document entitled "Reviewing Canada's Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Regime". The Act requires that a committee of Parliament review the administration and operation of the Act every five years.

The Department notes that a Mutual Evaluation report by the Financial Action Task Force ("FATF") found that Canada has strong anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing legislation and regulations, but noted there are several areas where action could be taken to ensure the framework meets technical standards and is even more effective.

Review the publication on the Department's website.
