The Law Society’s Trust Review Task Force is seeking your input on trust accounting and client identification and verification (CIV) rules, including anti-money laundering rules developed in partnership with the Federation of Law Societies Canada.

The online consultation provides the opportunity to have your say on the current rules and share ideas about potential opportunities for clarification and improvement. Your responses will inform the work of the Task Force as it considers recommendations of the Cullen Commission of Inquiry into Money Laundering in British Columbia, clarifies rules and develops a set of uniform rules in light of the intended creation of a single legal regulator. Please note, any feedback on anti-money laundering rules may be shared with the Federation of Law Societies Canada.

The consultation will take about 10 minutes to complete and will remain open until 11:59 pm (PST) on February 16, 2023. Access the consultation here.
