Auto Theft Update – Peel Regional Police

By Announcement, Issues

As we approach the start of Crime Prevention Week on November 5, Peel Regional Police (PRP) has been actively engaging with the community on organized auto thefts and promoting preventative measures. We also wanted to share an update on the current situation in Peel Region.

Auto theft and its prevention continue to be a top priority for PRP. Our Commercial Auto Crime Unit has doubled from six to twelve members, becoming one of the largest auto crime units in the province. It has further enhanced investigative measures and enforcement abilities, collaborating with police partners province-wide to crack down on auto theft.

As of October 31, 2023, PRP has successfully recovered over $130M worth of stolen vehicles, with a recovery rate of over 40%.

To date, there has been 5,888 of auto thefts reported in Peel Region. This number has exceeded last year’s figure, which totaled 5,518 auto thefts in 2022.

Year Auto Theft Recovered Vehicles Carjacking
2023 (To date) 6,121 2,369 76
2022 5,518 2,516 99
2021 3,771 1,837 59
2020 3,025 1,738 N/A


In addition, PRP’s Central Robbery Bureau (CRB) has seen a recent upward trend involving the carjacking and auto theft of food service delivery vehicles and personal transportation drivers, with 20 carjacking involving ride-share or delivery drivers as of August 30, 2023, since the start of the year.

In addition to local enforcement efforts, we are committed to identifying opportunities to strengthen measures at the provincial and federal levels to combat auto thefts. Deputy Chief Nick Milinovich recently traveled to the Port of Montreal with members of PRP’s Commercial Auto Crime Bureau to connect and discuss vulnerabilities around the export of stolen vehicles from Canada.

This visit identified opportunities that could help address PRP’s efforts toward auto theft recoveries. PRP will continue to work with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to ensure that auto theft is a priority and to allocate the necessary resources to inspect containers leaving the port.

Crime prevention is a crucial component in reducing instances of vehicle theft and carjacking. Throughout Crime Prevention Week, from November 5-11, PRP will share crime prevention tips to empower the community to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. To learn more, please visit

Mississauga Diabetes Strategy – Have Your Say

By Food for thought, Issues

What can we do to reduce the rates of Diabetes in Mississauga?

Type 2 diabetes is rapidly affecting a growing number of Mississauga residents. The City is working with partners, experts and communities to develop a strategy to prevent rising cases and protect residents’ health and well-being. Starting today, Monday, September 25, the City is asking residents to participate in an online survey. The survey will generate insights, identify areas of change that the City can take and will help develop the Mississauga Diabetes Strategy.

We want to hear from you

The City is looking to hear from as many community members and businesses as possible. Your input is critical to the success of this strategy.

Survey: Complete the online survey before Thursday, November 30, 2023.

The City will also engage in conversations with various communities throughout Mississauga, focusing on those with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. A health equity lens will be applied to ensure the needs of those most impacted by diabetes are considered, which would support changes that will benefit all citizens.

The City will work with the community, industry, agency and government partners to understand Mississauga’s unique type 2 diabetes challenges, identify community needs and priorities, build the strategy and determine the action plan.
