Financial transaction reporting

Some organizations are required to collect information about clients and report it to the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) in accordance with the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA).

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has developed information to help businesses subject to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) understand their privacy obligations in relation to PCMLTFA.
