Scheduling of Criminal Organizations

The Manitoba Evidence Act allows Manitoba Justice to apply to the provincial minister of justice to place a group on the Schedule of Criminal Organizations.  The list of criminal organizations can be used in proceedings under any provincial law.  It does not apply to Criminal Code or drug prosecutions.  

The Act requires notice of an application to be publicized in a newspaper with general circulation throughout Manitoba and on the Manitoba Justice website.

On May 16, 2013, the first application was made.  For a copy of the media release and backgrounder on the scheduling process, click here.
