Effective January 1, 2020, amendments to the client identification and verification rules introduce more stringent requirements to verify a client's identity, provide more options for how to confirm a client's identity, and require lawyers in financial transactions to obtain additional information about a client's source of funds, as well as periodic monitoring and recording professional business relationships with clients. The rules are a key part of the Society's efforts to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. Lawyers who do not comply with the rules may be subject to discipline.
