Administrative Monetary Penalties (AMPs) - - - - - 178
Total Non-respendable Revenue - - - - - 178

Since December 30, 2008, FINTRAC has had the legislative authority to issue administrative monetary penalties (AMPs) to reporting entities that are in non-compliance with Canada's Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA). Commencing in the 2009-10 fiscal year, the AMPs regime will be a source of non-respendable revenue for FINTRAC.

The purpose of the AMPs program is to encourage compliance with the PCMLTFA, rather than to punish non-compliance. It is an additional tool to criminal sanctions and represents a measured response to particular instances of reporting entity non-compliance. As such, FINTRAC does not plan on issuing a specific number or value of AMPs per year and is unable to forecast the level of non-respendable revenue derived from the issuance of AMPs.

Further information on penalties that may result from non-compliance with Part 1 of the PCMLTFA including AMPs may be found at

Response to Parliamentary Committees and External Audits

Response to Parliamentary Committees
During the reporting period, the Centre did not table any responses to Parliamentary Committee reports.
Response to the Auditor General (including to the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development)
During the reporting period, the Centre did not table any responses to the Auditor General.
External Audits (Note: These refer to other external audits conducted by the Public Service Commission of Canada or the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages)

As part of the 2006 legislative amendments to the PCMLTFA, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) assumed oversight responsibility with respect to the measures FINTRAC employs to protect the information under its control. The Privacy Commissioner is obliged to conduct a review every two years and report the results of the reviews to Parliament. The first of these reviews was tabled in November 2009.

The report recognized FINTRAC's good work in protecting its information holdings as well as the Centre's strong physical and IT security infrastructures. In order to further strengthen its compliance with the Code of Fair Information Practices and following the audit, FINTRAC has been working on exploring solutions to address the recommendations from the OPC.

In addition, FINTRAC has taken steps to strengthen its privacy management structure, and a member of its Executive Committee has been appointed Chief Privacy Officer. The Chief Privacy Officer's role is to provide strategic privacy leadership, and to coordinate and oversee privacy related activities for the Centre.
