Definition

1   In this regulation, "Act" means the Criminal Asset Management Act.

Relevant provisions

2   The following are relevant provisions:

(a) for the purpose of sections 3 (1) (d) [director's responsibilities] and 12 (3) (d) [Criminal Asset Management Fund] of the Act, a provision that creates a designated substance offence within the meaning of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada);

(b) for the purpose of section 12 (3) (d) of the Act, section 10 (2) of the Seized Property Management Act (Canada).

Payment out of the Criminal Asset Management Fund

3   (1) An eligible victim may apply for compensation from the fund by filing with the director a completed form as set out in the Schedule within the period specified in the notice published by the director for payment of compensation from that forfeiture.

(2) Before the director makes a payment out of the fund with respect to property that has been forfeited, the director must publish a notice specifying that a person may file an application for payment of compensation with respect to that forfeiture.

(3) The notice referred to in subsection (2) must specify a period for filing an application that is not less than 3 months nor more than 9 months from the date of publication of the notice, or of the first notice, as the case may be.

Determination of net proceeds

4   For the purposes of the Act and this regulation, net proceeds is the amount of money resulting from the disposition of property forfeited under the Act, after subtracting the following costs incurred by the director in proceeding under the Act with respect to that forfeited property:

(a) the legal costs in relation to the distribution of compensation resulting from that forfeiture;

(b) the management and administrative costs related to holding and administering the forfeited property before disposition;

(c) the costs related to the sale or disposition of the forfeited property.

Prorating payments

5   (1) The director may prorate payments among eligible victims who have applied for compensation, if the net proceeds in the fund that are attributable to a forfeiture of property are less than the total pecuniary loss suffered by the eligible victims as a direct result of the unlawful activity that resulted in that forfeiture.

(2) The payment made to each eligible victim must be determined in accordance with the following formula:

prorated payment = (A x B) ÷ C
where
A = the net proceeds in the fund that are attributable to a forfeiture of property;
B = the pecuniary loss suffered by an eligible victim that resulted in the forfeiture of that property, excluding interest on that pecuniary loss;
C = the total pecuniary loss suffered by all eligible victims that resulted in the forfeiture of that property, excluding interest on that pecuniary loss.
