Suggested Dataset: Provincial Corporation Registry
Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada
As part of their AML processes, all regulated industries in Canada have an obligation to investigate potential money laundering activity in order to report to FINTRAC. Understanding where a company is registered, the directors and the ultimate beneficial owners are central to the investigators. At present there is no easy way to search for companies across Canada. The federal datasets are a good start, but the provincial datasets are also required. Without this, it is problematic for any institution to holistically search and identify companies in Canada which in turn limits the progress that can be made nationwide towards mitigating financial crime risk.
