    Establishing a Best-in-Class Public Beneficial Ownership Registry in Canada

    Overview

    In the 2021 federal budget, the Government of Canada proposed the establishment of a publicly accessible registry of beneficial ownership. After years of critiques by domestic and international actors, this proposal is an enormous win for Canada in the fight against money laundering and tax evasion.

     There is still work to do however, to ensure Canada has a best-in-class beneficial ownership registry. In this webinar, experts will discuss key components of a registry that the government must consider and how best to implement them, including:

    • Data verification

    • Enforcement and sanctions

    • Defining beneficial ownership and control

    • Domestic and international integration

    Experts discussing these topics and more are:
    • James Cohen, Executive Director, Transparency International Canada

    • Sasha Caldera, Beneficial Ownership Campaign Manager, PWYP Canada

    • Charlene Cieslik, Chief Compliance Officer, Localcoin

    • Kevin Comeau, Lawyer
