Join us for the 18th instalment of Canada’s premier event in the field of money laundering compliance.
CAMLI is starting a regular member - only chat series, which will include a brief presentation by a subject matter expert, followed by time for a Q&A and discussion period.
The presentation will be recorded and posted to the Member's section on for later viewing. The discussion period will not be recorded or shared to enable open sharing and protect privacy.
These sessions will be open only to current CAMLI members and will be limited to 25 participants to enable discussion. You will receive confirmation after you register that you are one of the first 25 to register. All others will be put onto a waiting list.

As the registrar at CAMLI, I end up talking to a lot of people who are just starting out in AML compliance, or were given the task a while ago and are working really hard to do the best they can. One thing I always encourage them to do is read the regulations and learn as much as they can from whatever source works for them. Knowledge really does give you the power to succeed in any task.
The majority of our training and services are already delivered online, with the exception of the Money Laundering in Canada conference and the CAMLI September seminars. These events are scheduled for September 21-23rd, 2020 in Ottawa.
We are in the process of finalizing arrangements to live webcast and professionally record the scheduled sessions. The sessions will then be uploaded online for later viewing by those conference registrants who either attended the Conference and/or seminars in person or via the live streaming. While we recognize that a webcast doesn’t provide the same rich experience that attending Money Laundering in Canada typically would, we wanted to ensure the option is available for those delegates who will not be able to travel to Ottawa this year.
CAMLI September Seminars
Money Laundering in Canada 2020

In this half-day seminar, Jean-Francois will bring participants up to speed on how the sector has evolved since legalization; the strengths and weaknesses seen to date from provincial, federal, and international perspectives; the direct impacts on Canada from continuing USA criminalization of cannabis; what specific risks have emerged and how these are and can impact on business relationships between the industry and its service providers; the lessons learned from watching legalization-evolution unfold; and through the presentation of examples, what best practices are emerging to manage and monitor the risks now and going forward.
