Description

Wedged between gaming law and anti-money laundering provisions, the gaming industry is complex and challenging. That’s likely why no one has taken on the task of providing specific, thorough and practical advice to practitioners and managers working in this sector – until now. Canadian Anti-Money Laundering Law: Gaming Sector teams a pair of seasoned authorities in AML and gaming law to illuminate the context and break down the requirements into practical, comprehensible steps.

Canadian Anti-Money Laundering Law: Gaming Sector is your only resource for:

  • Focused discussion and guidance on gaming law and AML in Canada
  • Sound advice on how to discharge due diligence and meet anti-money laundering and terrorist financing requirements

For the first time, you can turn to one book for clearly written guidance, the relevant statutory provisions, and practical compliance tools – including a model compliance plan for casinos and an annotated table of key anti-money laundering requirements.

Receive real-world guidance incorporating amendments to the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act

Pressure is mounting from the government and regulatory authorities, and gaming and casino enterprises must struggle to comply with the recent amendments. They need sound, practical advice. Now you can turn to this authoritative work for a thorough understanding of the unique gaming operating environment in Canada and how anti-money laundering requirements intersect with that legal framework.

The recent amendments to the Act have brought welcome progress, but they also introduce new uncertainties and raise new questions. The authors examine the amendments and reveal the steps gaming operations must take to comply.
