    The Good Fight

    Canada is working tirelessly to improve its AML landscape and better protect its economy from illicit financial activity. The country has doubled down on its quest for AML reform, made apparent by the recent fines against some of its largest banks for noncompliance, as well as the many government-created entities to fight money laundering. This year’s program offers expert guidance and practical insight on how Canadian AML professionals can continue the fight against financial crime.


    Join us on Nov 6-7, 2024, for a deep dive into the current state of Canada’s AFC landscape – whether it’s the creation of the new federal beneficial ownership registry and its impact on the Canadian compliance community, the 5-year Parliamentary Review of the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Regulations (PCMLTFA) or preparing for FATF’s Mutual Evaluation of Canada. Additionally, the country’s top AML experts will address critical issues currently affecting compliance professionals such as all things fraud, the latest financial crime trends including romance scams and pig butchering, the convergence between sanctions and AML, technology’s role in both facilitating and combating financial crime, and more.
