You represent that you are not a resident, user or entity associated with any prohibited state:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)
- Lao PDR
- Sri Lanka
- Trinidad and Tobago
You represent that you are not a politically exposed foreign person:
A ‘politically exposed foreign person’ is a person who holds or has held one of the following offices or positions in or on behalf of a foreign state:
- head of state or head of government;
- member of the executive council of government or member of a legislature;
- deputy minister or equivalent rank;
- ambassador or attaché or counselor of an ambassador;
- military officer with a rank of general or above;
- president of a state-owned company or a state-owned bank;
- head of a government agency;
- leader or president of a political party represented in a legislature; or
- holder of any prescribed office or position. It includes any prescribed family member of such a person.
For the purpose of the definition of a PEFP, the prescribed family members of a politically exposed foreign person are;
- the person’s spouse or common-law partner;
- a child of the person;
- the person’s mother or father;
- the mother or father of the person’s spouse or common-law partner; and

Being a Canadian citizen DOES NOT discount a client from being a politically exposed foreign person. A Canadian citizen who holds or has held a prescribed position on behalf of a foreign country would be considered a PEFP. For example, a Canadian citizen that works for a foreign embassy outside of Canada as an attaché of an ambassador would be considered a PEFP.
