Law firm pooled trust accounts are regulated by The Law Society of Manitoba. In April 2019, the Law Society implemented a Trust Safety Program that represents a significant change to the regulatory requirements for trust accounts. This requires all new firms who wish to operate a trust account to apply to the Law Society prior to opening a trust account and all new and existing firms to assign a practising lawyer (to be approved) as the firm’s trust account supervisor.
