VICTORIA -- Finance Minister Bill Morneau says fighting money laundering in Canada and abroad is on the federal government s agenda.

He says the federal government is working together with British Columbia s government to combat money laundering.

Morneau says the government s focus on money laundering also spreads beyond Canada s borders where there are global concerns with dirty money funding terrorist organizations.

The minister made the comments at a news conference following a speech to members of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce.
