Map notes:

Locations for some forfeitures were vague, so some mapped locations are estimated.

Total value of property seized is based on amounts of cash and estimated values of property as reported by police. Where U.S. dollars were seized, the value has been converted to Canadian dollars based on exchange rates in February 2014. Where vehicles were seized, their value was estimated, in Canadian dollars, based on Blue Book and Black Book values or averaging asking prices for similar vehicles in February 2014.
