Ms. Lafleur,

The Institute of Canadian Bankers welcomes the opportunity to comment on the consultation paper "Enhancing Canada's Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Regime".

As a provider of educational activities for the financial services sector, we commend the initiatives outlined in the consultation paper to strengthen Canada's AML/ATF framework. In particular we support the steps that are recommended to create a new AML/ATF advisory committee. In our own business processes and learning solution development we endeavor to ensure that we meet the needs of the financial services sector through the involvement of advisory committees. We therefore believe strongly that cooperation between all levels of government regulators and financial sector participants will be critical to the success of Canada's initiative to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.

As leading developers of AML/ATF compliance learning solutions we offer our expertise in working with committees to create compliance learning solutions and would be pleased to be considered for inclusion on the advisory committee. Your response to this offer would be appreciated. For the purposes of this committee my preferred language for further communication is English, however, I can communicate in French as well.

Please feel free to post this comment on the Department of Finance Canada website. Details on my contact information are included on the above letterhead.

Regards,

Marie Muldowney
