Who benefits from forfeiture?

Forfeiture allows for victims to receive the return of property, or compensation paid from the sale of forfeited property. If there is no identifiable victim, then the beneficiary will be victims programs that are identified and funded (in whole or in part) by Alberta Justice.

Also, communities that are plagued by illegal act property will benefit when the property is forfeited. Forfeited illegal act proceeds, illegal profits and the instruments of illegal acts will no longer be able to reduce community safety.
