Civil Forfeiture in Canada

Canada’s civil forfeiture laws allow provincial governments
to seize and transfer ownership of property without
compensation when the property is suspected of being
used to commit an illegal act or is suspected of having
been acquired by committing an illegal act.

There are eight provinces in Canada that have civil forfeiture laws on the books.
Ontario was the first to enact this sort of legislation in 2001
with Alberta following shortly after in the same year.

Other provinces soon enacted similar laws:

Manitoba (2004),
British Columbia (2005),
Saskatchewan (2005),
Nova Scotia (2007),
Quebec (2007),
and New Brunswick (2010).

To date, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador
have not enacted civil forfeiture statutes.
