Ottawa, Ontario, May 16, 2012 – Today, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) added six new profiles of individuals to the "Wanted by the CBSA" list.
To ensure the public is engaged and continues to provide assistance, six new profiles of individuals are featured on the "Wanted by the CBSA" Web page, alongside some of the cases profiled at previous announcements. The public's assistance with the Wanted by the CBSA program has been tremendous and the CBSA encourages the public to frequently visit the "Wanted by the CBSA" Web page for updates on new cases, apprehensions and removals.
The program has proven to be a useful tool in assisting CBSA officers to locate individuals who are wanted for removal. To date, as a result of the "Wanted by the CBSA" program, Canadians have assisted in locating 25 individuals in Canada, while five individuals were located abroad. In addition, the CBSA has removed 17 of these individuals from Canada.
If you have information about suspicious cross-border activity or immigration-related offences, please contact the CBSA by calling the Border Watch Toll-free Line at 1-888-502-9060. Members of the public are reminded that they should not take action to apprehend the individuals listed on the Web site.
