Civil Forfeiture - Protect Your Assets Today
When law enforcement suspects a connection between certain items and a potential crime or its proceeds in Canada, they have the authority to seize them under reasonable grounds, even without laying criminal charges.
The Impact of the Civil Forfeiture Act in BC
The Civil Forfeiture Act allows the Director of Civil Forfeiture to initiate legal action against assets suspected to be linked to illicit activities in British Columbia. This process can proceed even without criminal charges. Often, scenarios may involve individuals caught selling illegal drugs from a vehicle, even if it's a family member's car, resulting in the vehicle being designated as offense-related property.
