Well, Mr. Watchlist learned something, the hard way – by misunderstanding OSFI’s anti-terrorism financing web page and tables. I’ll forgive myself a little – until late December, all of OSFI’s news releases modifying these tables emanated from changes promulgated by the United Nations.
But there are actually 3 sources of information that feeds into these tables – as per the description on the web page:
Lists of Names subject to the Regulations Establishing a List of Entities made under subsection 83.05(1) of the Criminal Code, and/or the Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolutions on the Suppression of Terrorism (RIUNRST) and/or United Nations Al-Qaida and Taliban Regulations (UNAQTR).
So, December 28th’s OSFI action is actually related to the Regulations Establishing a List of Entities and is unrelated to any action by the UN.
Let’s chalk this up as a learning experience…
