Great Expectations: A Look at the Cullen Commission’s Report and Recommendations
The complete report from the Cullen Commission is out and includes a plethora of findings and over 100 accompanying recommendations meant to address British Columbia’s AML deficiencies and prevent further money laundering in the province. The question on everyone’s mind is this: what happens next? Will the Cullen Recommendations become legislation for BC? And if so, can the legislation be enforced? Will the rest of Canada follow BC’s lead? Will this completely change the way DNFBPs such as lawyers and accountants do business? In this session, our experts will discuss the necessary steps for AML professionals to be in conformance with the Cullen Recommendations, and its potentially significant impact on the Canadian economy.
