IRSCompliantForever brings to our attention another compliance industry learning opportunity — and an opportunity to protest FATCA.
Will there also be a few “No to Canadian banks imposing FATCA” signs for a Toronto mini-protest on November 13 and 14 outside the Metro Convention Centre?
At the the “Canadian Institute’s 19th Annual REGULATORY COMPLIANCE for Financial Institutions,”
“Hear from ALL 5 Big Banks in Canada and more!
Hear from CIBC, TD Bank, Scotiabank, AMEX Bank of Canada, RBC Law Group, BMO Financial Group, HSBC Financial Canada, Manulife Financial, ATB Financial, Travelers and JPMorgan Chase Bank” WHO ALL AIM TO HELP THE US IMPOSE FATCA ON CANADIANS.
The banks will teach attendees at the conference how to: “[Navigate] the hurdles preventing [Canadian FIs] from achieving compliance with FATCA.”
John Staples (Nov 14) will provide a lecture on “Preparing to Implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)” which will include …”an update on your most pressing FATCA questions and understand how Canadian FIs will perform and achieve compliance with the final regulations.” and even “Evaluating the consequences of opting out of the compliance agreement.”
The Privacy Commissioner of Ontario will also be there.
