FINTRAC and FCAC: New Regulatory Requirements and Responses to COVID-19

June 22, 2020 - 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
Pandemic or not, recent changes have been made to the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada Act as well as to the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act. In the case of the FCAC, these changes have expanded regulatory powers. For FINTRAC-regulated entities, there are new reporting timelines and compliance obligations, including the publication of new guidance in respect of suspicious transaction reporting. In addition to these changes, both FINTRAC and the FCAC have been vocal on expectations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Join Blakes for a live webcast to address these and other new developments.
