Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada
The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), Canada's financial intelligence unit, was created in 2000. It is an independent agency intended to contribute to the public safety of Canadians and help protect the integrity of Canada's financial system through the detection and deterrence of money laundering and terrorist financing. It is accountable to Parliament for its activities and was established and operates under the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act and its regulations.
The FINTRAC fulfills its mandate through the following activities:
- Receiving financial transaction reports and voluntary information on money laundering and terrorist financing
- Ensuring compliance of reporting entities with the legislation and regulations
- Producing financial intelligence relevant to money laundering, terrorist activity financing and threats to the security of Canada investigations
- Researching and analyzing data from a variety of information sources that shed light on trends and patterns
- Maintaining a registry of money services businesses in Canada
- Enhancing public awareness and understanding of money laundering and terrorist activity financing
If you do not agree with a decision made by FINTRAC, you may request a review of your file.
