Ontario has signed the first inter-provincial agreement that will help in confiscating profits generated from unlawful activity outside of Ontario.
This agreement allows provinces to share relevant information to pursue property used and profits generated from unlawful activities even though the activity may have happened in another province.
Provinces signing the historic agreement are:
Money and property seized will be used to compensate victims of unlawful activity and to help police prevent future illegal actions.
“Illegal acts know no borders. I am committed to working with other provinces across Canada to help break down barriers that shelter wrongdoers from the consequences of their unlawful activities.”
