Anti-Crime Capacity Building
The Government of Canada’s Anti-Crime Capacity Building Program (ACCBP) provides up to $15 million a year to enhance the capacity of government agencies, international organizations and non-governmental entities to prevent and respond to threats posed by transnational criminal activity throughout the Americas using a variety of bilateral and multilateral project-delivery mechanisms. The ACCBP was launched by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in August 2009 during the North American Leaders' Summit in Guadalajara, Mexico.
In Central America and the Caribbean, the ACCBP focuses on illicit drug trafficking, security-sector reform and crime prevention. In the Americas more widely, the Program also seeks to tackle corruption, human trafficking and migrant smuggling, and money laundering and proceeds of crime.
The ACCBP is managed by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada.
