September 1, 2015

The Centre on Philanthropy, whose mission is to support and advocate for an effective and sustainable third sector, will partner with The Registry General to deliver Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist workshops commencing on Thursday, September 17, 2015.

Elaine Butterfield, Executive Director of the Centre on Philanthropy states, “As a result of the new Charities Act 2014 [which came into effect on December 31, 2014], registered charities are now required to appoint an AML/ATF Compliance Officer.

“In order for charities to successfully complete their annual registration, the appointed Compliance Officer is required to undergo the training, which will include the following topics:

  • Non-profit risk assessment
  • Annual Reporting and record keeping requirements
  • Due diligence requirements
  • AML/ATF Systems and control requirements

“We are delighted to be able to bring this mandatory training to charities in partnership with the Registry General.

“Once trained, nonprofit agencies will be able to identify any risk in receiving funds inappropriately or from inappropriate sources, as well as undertake regular reviews on the risks they face and institute risk-avoidance procedures.”

The trainings will be held on September 17, 2015; September 22 & 24th. Training sessions are free. All sessions are in compliance with the registration requirements of The Registry General. Sessions will be held at The Centre on Philanthropy, 16 Wesley Street, Hamilton HM 11.

Attendees are required to register at info@centreonphilanthropy.org or 236-7706.
