The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP)-led Provincial Auto Theft and Towing (PATT) Team and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) have recovered 598 vehicles before they were illegally exported as part of Project Vector. The CBSA regularly works with the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) and Équité Association to search sea containers suspected of containing stolen vehicles. Approximately 75 per cent of vehicles recovered from sea containers in Montréal are identified as stolen in Ontario. Since December 2023, Project Vector has resulted in 390 shipping containers inspected and 598 vehicles recovered, including 483 from Ontario and 115 from Québec. The recovered vehicles identified as stolen in Ontario have a potential value of approximately $34.5 million.
