F2R reporting

What is F2R?

If you already have a user ID and password to access F2R, you can log on.

F2R is a secure Internet service for the submission of reports to FINTRAC. Each report is keyed individually by completing reporting screens relating to the report type.

An administrator has to be assigned for each reporting entity to control access to F2R and maintain information about locations, contacts, etc.

How can I gain access to F2R?

To access F2R you must first complete FINTRAC's enrolment process for electronic reporting.

Once a reporting entity is enrolled, individual users need a user ID and a password.

For more information about using F2R, see the F2R User Guide.

Browser requirements

To use F2R, your browser has to be set to accept cookies. A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer by the F2R website.

Also, to ensure that you can successfully access F2R securely and confidentially, you must be using a browser that supports 128-bit Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). TLS and SSL are protocols used for providing a secure channel between your browser and FINTRAC. When TLS or SSL is in use, it reduces the risk of data being compromised. TLS and SSL are widely adopted standards for ensuring secure web communications.

In addition, all browsers using F2R must have JavaScript enabled.

Although other web browsers may also function, we have tested Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 9 or greater) and it was proven to work with F2R.

Additional information relating to set-up

The computer you use may be vulnerable to viruses and other forms of malicious code including worms, Trojan horses, keystroke grabbers, spyware, or online attacks that seek to intercept sensitive information that you provide through the Internet. To reduce the chances of harm, you should ensure that any computer you use to access F2R has up-to-date anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, a firewall, an intrusion detection or intrusion prevention system, or other security safeguards, as appropriate.

Once you have finished using F2R, FINTRAC suggests that you clear your browser cache. Information stored in the browser cache is not encrypted, and could be compromised by others. FINTRAC requests that all users exit F2R using the "Log Off" link and close their browser after logging off.

To help protect against unauthorized access to an F2R secure session, FINTRAC has designed the session to automatically terminate through a timed logout. This will occur automatically after 30 minutes of inactivity in an F2R session. However, any information entered during that session in a report will be automatically saved and available in a future session from the incomplete report queue.

If you have questions or problems relating to electronic reporting that may be related to your browser, contact FINTRAC. We provide full technical support for the browsers that we have tested.
