A Review of Section 264 (Criminal Harassment) of the Criminal Code of Canada


The authors of this report would like to acknowledge the assistance provided by many organizations and individuals, without which the research we conducted would not have been possible. Police detachments in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Metropolitan Toronto, Montreal and Halifax made information readily available and were helpful in discussing their handling of criminal harassment cases. The Crown Attorneys offices in Vancouver, Edmonton and Winnipeg also made their files and workspace available to us, and Crown in all six sites took the time to discuss their criminal harassment cases with us. We are particularly grateful to Louise Savage at the Department of Justice Canada, who participated actively in the research, and to her and others at the Department who provided guidance.
