Additional resource documents to help you prepare for changes to the STR form are now available and an update on the LVCTR form / Des ressources documentaires supplémentaires pour vous aider à vous préparer aux changements apportés aux formulaires de DOD sont maintenant disponibles, ainsi qu’une mise à jour du formulaire de DOIMV

Good day,

Following the publication of the Resource documents to help reporting entities prepare for changes to the Suspicious Transaction Report (STR) form, the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) has developed additional documentation to help you prepare for the launch of the new STR form. These new documents include the:

-STR mock form: this was revised to clarify some field descriptions, add new fields (for example, time of posting) and update some table values

-STR JSON schema: this was updated to increase character allowances for certain fields and change the data value of some field types

-STR validation rules

To view the updated form, schema and the newly published STR validation rules, please visit the Draft documents page of our website.

These documents are meant to supplement previous STR documents such as the guidance on reporting suspicious transactions to FINTRAC. We encourage reporting entities to review these documents in addition to the newly published material.

Please note: These are early release documents and specifications. While these documents are in their final stages of development, they are still labelled as “draft documents” and, as such, may be subject to minor subsequent changes. We remain committed to providing sufficient time to allow reporting entities to implement these changes.

As well, the large virtual currency transaction report (LVCTR) form was amended to fix a phrasing discrepancy regarding the relationship information that is required between the conductor of a transaction and a third party; it now aligns with other reports and the FINTRAC web reporting system (FWR).

At FINTRAC, we are committed to working with businesses to increase their awareness, understanding and compliance with their obligations under the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA) and associated Regulations. For questions, please contact us by telephone at 1-866-346-8722 (select option 4) or by email at F2R@fintrac-canafe.gc.ca.
