AREA is proud to announce the successful completion of its 2016 mandatory training component. We can now say that Alberta REALTORS® are better equipped to comply with the federal government's Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA) and do their part in the global fight against money laundering and terrorist activities. We recognize the dedication of our members, and the participation and support from Alberta's 10 local Boards/Associations, in meeting this milestone. Together we are advancing the professionalism of our industry.
We will continue make the (annually updated) FINTRAC course available for members at a discounted rate of $25 and encourage Alberta brokerages to consider employing it in their annual FINTRAC training.
Stay tuned for some exciting new FINTRAC workshop announcements in 2017!
