FINTRAC at a glance
The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) is Canada's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). We assist in the detection, prevention and deterrence of money laundering and terrorist financing, two significant threats to Canada's security and economy.
Our dynamic complement of approximately 380 employees draws on its specialized knowledge and expertise in fields such as regulatory compliance, financial intelligence, policy development, international relations, information and technology, and corporate excellence to achieve our vision to be the leader in the exploitation of financial intelligence.
The nature of our work is rapidly evolving to keep pace with ground-breaking technological advances, the globalization of financial products and services, and the increasing sophistication of national and international criminal and terrorist organizations. By ensuring a robust regulatory compliance regime and the timely production of actionable financial intelligence, we play an integral role in the global fight against organized crime groups, cybercriminals, human traffickers, terrorist organizations and others who would seek to undermine or abuse the world's financial systems.
Whether it's the means and the end or the means to an end, it's all about the money and that's where we come in. Our work has never been more relevant or important—now is the time to join the fight!
