This research project analyzes the existing policy in Canada that regulate cryptocurrency use to mitigate the rate of illicit behaviour occurring in the digital space. Through an extensive policy and literature analysis, the research was able to locate areas in Canadian legislation that lacked a cohesive regulatory framework that enabled criminal activity to take place. The areas of focus in this research are Canadian Securities laws, Anti-money laundering/ Anti-terrorist financing legislation, as well tax rules. The findings offer policy reform and implementation in these regulatory areas.
