We are taking the profits out of the wrongdoer’s hands and making them available to police to keep the community and families safe, and to prevent future victimization."

 A MESSAGE FROM THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
August 2007
Ontario’s innovative Civil Remedies Act was the first of its kind in Canada, and I amproud that Ontario continues to be a nationally and internationally recognized leader inthe field of civil forfeiture. We are using the Civil Remedies Act with great success. TheCivil Remedies for Illicit Activities (CRIA) office, which enforces the act in Ontario, isconsidered an international authority on civil forfeiture and I commend this dedicatedteam for its excellent work.This report,
Civil Forfeiture in Ontario 2007 — An Update on the Civil Remedies Act,2001,
provides information and examples of civil forfeitures under the act.Working with designated institutions across the province, including police, CRIA’s officehas achieved significant results. The Civil Remedies Act will continue to be used to seekcourt orders to forfeit assets acquired through or used for unlawful activity, and to usethose assets to compensate victims.
The Honourable Michael BryantAttorney General
