View Text Equivalent for the Project Cartella Poster

This image depicts the contribution that FINTRAC's financial intelligence made in Project Cartella, in partnership with Peel Regional Police, Halton Regional Police, York Regional Police and Ontario Provincial Police.

16 individuals were arrested and $3 million worth of drugs seized from various residential and commercial properties in the Greater Toronto Area during the year-long investigation.

The predicate offences were related to drugs, firearms and possession of property obtained by crime.

Peel Regional Police quote: "Project Cartella brought investigators together with the Halton Regional Police, the York Regional Police and the Ontario Provincial Police, and drew support from the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC)."

Terrorist financing

  • Funds can be legitimate and/or illegitimate.
  • Attempt to hide the identity of donors/sponsors and the purpose for which funds are amassed.
  • Associated financial transactions tend to be in smaller amounts than money laundering.

Threats to the security of Canada

  • Espionage / Sabotage
  • Foreign influenced activities
  • Terrorism
  • Subversion

Money is the means to a more nefarious end goal.
