A call for a public register of beneficial owners.

Canada has a problem.

Secret companies are being used to launder money into the Canadian economy. It’s called snow-washing, and it contributes to soaring real estate prices and acts as a haven for criminals to clean their dirty money through secret companies, casinos, and luxury goods.

Because Canada has a strong economy paired with lax rules for corporate transparency, our country is the perfect destination for criminals and tax evaders to stash their cash.


But we can put an end to snow-washing.

Canada can join other countries working on this same problem and create a publicly accessible company register of the true owners of these companies. Because criminals take advantage of our laws that allow for secrecy, a publicly accessible register shines a light on this problem.

Add your voice to the call for a public registry and help ensure that criminals can no longer hide illegal cash through secret companies.
