Know Your Customer [KYL], Anti-Money Laundering [AML] & Counter Terrorist Funding [CTF]
AML & CTF Basics
Money laundering is the process of taking money obtained by committing a crime and disguising the source to make it appear legitimate. Under the Criminal Code of Canada, it is illegal to launder money or to knowingly assist in laundering money. Under the PCMLTFA and Regulations, as well as legislation applicable in other jurisdictions in which we operate, we must take steps to be sure that our business is not used to launder money and if we suspect that money laundering may be taking place, we must report it.
Terrorist financing is the process of moving funds in order to pay for terrorist activities. Unlike money laundering, the source of the funds is not always criminal, but the intended use of the funds is criminal. Under the Criminal Code of Canada, it is illegal to knowingly assist in the financing of terrorism, including the possession of terrorist funds or property. If we know or suspect that we have terrorist property in our possession, it must be reported immediately.
Best-Exchanger reports to and follows the guidelines of the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC). Best-Exchanger is committed to preventing, detecting and deterring money laundering and terrorist financing, and has a zero-tolerance policy in regard to money laundering and terrorist financing. To that end, Best-Exchanger has developed and instituted policy and procedures to ensure compliance with this commitment, which includes reporting standards and obligations, record keeping, information collection, staff responsibilities, and staff training.
It is the responsibility of every employee (including contract and part-time employees) to comply with this program and all related Canadian legislation.
FINTRAC is the agency that regulates our industry to ensure that we are meeting our obligations. They have the power to review our documentation and to levy significant penalties if we are not compliant. Individuals that deliberately attempt to circumvent the law may also be charged criminally in addition to monetary penalties.
