There is an increasingly crowded regulatory landscape of reporting obligations relating to financial and other interests globally.  In Canada, the federal government has introduced new reporting requirements for federally owned companies and for trusts. In B.C., the government has introduced a variety of new rules for disclosure (including changes to the Corporations Act and the Property Transfer Act).  It is also the first province to implement reporting requirements in relation to land ownership, in its Land Owner Transparency Act. The statue will come into force in 2020 and will impact estate and business planning that involve nominee and trustee ownership.

On behalf of STEP Canada, Fiona Hunter (along with colleagues Ian Worland and Peter Glowacki) drafted a response to the BC government’s request for consultation on a draft LOTA, and subsequently presented a paper at STEP’s 2019 Annual Conference which examined the LOTA.  She will give an overview of the Act and how it may affect advice to clients.
