Economic Crimes

Prevent illicit financial activity and navigate complex regulations.

Tailored anti-money laundering and compliance solutions that suit your needs

Regulators around the globe are increasingly vigilant about money laundering and terrorist financing, as well as bribery and corruption. The growing influence of socially conscious investors further intensifies the scrutiny on illicit financial transactions.

Unfortunately, Canada has the dubious distinction of being a friendly haven for illicit financial activity. Canadian businesses need to be armed with anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) solutions. Even if your organization is an unknowing participant of such schemes, you could be exposed to aggressive enforcement actions and substantial fines.

BDO's goal is to help your organization navigate complex regulatory requirements and avoid being an unwitting participant in money laundering schemes through tailored anti-money laundering solutions that suit your needs and unique requirements. Our experienced team can support your compliance with PCMLTFA and FINTRAC, including the latest requirements as they evolve.

We can also assist with the design and implementation of proactive AML and ABC solutions including developing compliance programs and policies, AML advisory, risk assessments, training and workshops, independent investigations, and litigation support.
