ABOUT US

AML compliance for reporting entities has never been of greater critical importance than it is today. With the growing sophistication of criminals and the methods and technologies that they employed, combined with the intensified focus on AML by the government and the public, the risks, both financial and reputational, for non-compliance is immense.

Join us in person in Toronto or via livestream to gain practical guidance and insights into how to develop and implement a compliance program that can adapt with the latest technological tools and sufficiently meet emerging regulatory obligations. Engage and network with our stellar speaker faculty and your peers so that you can stay on the cutting edge of the latest developments in law and practice.


At the end of the conference, each attendee will receive an official Certificate of Attendance.
