Join us next Monday, September 28, from 2p.m. - 3p.m. EST, for a webinar about Beneficial Ownership Transparency. The webinar will be hosted by Publish What You Pay Canada and includes coalition partners Transparency International Canada and Canadians For Tax Fairness -- three organizations that have joined forces to advocate for Canada to create a publicly accessible, pan-Canadian, company registry of beneficial owners.
Money laundering has played a role in artificially increasing the price of real estate in Vancouver, exacerbating the problem of housing unaffordability. This problem may be occurring in other Canadian cities, and a beneficial ownership registry could deter criminals who seek to use real estate to launder money. In light of the recent FinCEN leaks by Buzzfeed News and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, this is a timely webinar about money laundering (e.g., snow-washing) in Canada.
The 60-minute webinar will provide an overview of our advocacy work and briefly highlight insights from our latest reports which we released last week. You can access all our reports here: www.endsnowwashing.ca/reports
