RESOURCE - Check For Stolen Vehicles
Have you ever wondered if a vehicle was stolen but didn't want to call the police to find out? Now you can use the same search tool that the police do with your own home computer and internet connection! Simply visit the Canadian Police Information Center (CPIC) web site and search for stolen vehicles by Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). If the vehicle is in the CPIC database as stolen you'll know.
The search is valid for any type of vehicle that has a VIN: cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles, farm vehicles, heavy equipment, trailers, and ATVs.
E-bikes may have a VIN or a serial number depending on how they are registered. If you are unsure, search under both VIN and bicycles.
It can be a useful tool to avoid buying stolen property. The main CPIC search page will also allow you to search property, boats & motors and firearms.
CPIC vehicle data is updated daily and is maintained by the RCMP on behalf of all Canadian police agencies.
