Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Law

Canada’s anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing regime of enforcement, oversight, outreach and self-regulation initiatives also addresses the exploitation of charitable organizations for money laundering and terrorist financing. Money laundering and terrorist financing may involve funds raised from legitimate sources, such as donations from individuals and businesses. As such, charitable organizations, particularly those operating outside Canada, may be at risk of being used as a front or cover to raise or move funds, personnel, military supplies, and other resources, as well as to deliver humanitarian assistance with the purpose of radicalizing vulnerable communities.

As a law firm experienced in serving charities and not-for-profit organizations with operations outside Canada, Carters is able to provide advice with regard to Canada’s anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing regime, including:

  • Anti-bribery Compliance
  • Anti-money Laundering and Anti-terrorism Financing Policies
  • Foreign Charities Operating in Canada
  • Gift Acceptance Policies
  • Governance Advice
  • National and International Structures
  • Operations Outside Canada
