Aug 24, 2011 - Province Strengthening Anti-Money Laundering at Casinos
A review of anti-money laundering strategies at B.C.'s gaming centres was initiated in early 2011 by the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General to assess what strategies are in place and where opportunities exist for improvement. The report was released by the ministry today.
Based on recommendations contained in the report, GPEB and BCLC have developed an action plan that will assist the industry to transition away from cash by encouraging the greater use of electronic funds, which will deter money laundering activity and improve patron safety.
