Criminal Intelligence Service 2006 Annual Report on Organized Crime

Canada's Criminal Intelligence Service has just released its latest annual report on the activities of organized crime in Canada.

The Service coordinates the criminal intelligence units of Canadian law enforcement agencies at the federal and provincial levels of government. It is chaired by the Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

This year's report underlines the geographic expansion of organized crime. Traditionally based in our large cities such as Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, the report explains that it is now actively recruiting members in rural and small-town Canada.

Organized crime activities involve production and distribution of narcotics, firearms smuggling, vehicle theft, financial fraud, identity theft, counterfeiting, human trafficking and money laundering.

The report also features a major section on the structure and activities of violent street gangs.
