The Alberta Law Society has announced it was extending the trust safety annual filing deadline. Firms will now have until April 30 to submit their annual reports.

“A reminder that opportunities for fraud/theft historically have arisen in times like this. It is more important than ever before to provide rigorous and consistent oversight of the trust funds in your care,” the law society said in a release. “We encourage all firms to review their processes to ensure that the appropriate amount of oversight is taking place.”
