One week before the national auto theft summit, Justin Trudeau's government announces $121 million in funding to combat gun violence, gangs and auto theft in Ontario.

Federal Minister of Public Safety, Dominic LeBlanc, highlights that vehicle thefts are on the rise in the Greater Toronto Area.

About 9,600 vehicles were stolen in the Toronto area in 2022, an increase of 300 per cent since 2015, Ottawa says, citing statistics from the Canadian Finance and Leasing Association.

The Trudeau government is hosting a national summit on auto theft on February 8 in Ottawa.

The first Ontario Minister Doug Ford welcomes the federal grant, saying many Ontarians are currently living in “fear.”

The funding, provided over five years, is to be used for various initiatives against gun violence and auto theft, including the provincial task force established in partnership with several police forces.

Ottawa's aid comes from a fund announced in the 2022 budget to help police services across the country.
