Extradition and Mutual Legal Assistance
The Department of Justice, through the International Assistance Group (IAG), assists Canadian and foreign police and prosecutors by extraditing people to face prosecution or sentencing in the country in which they are charged or convicted. The IAG also assists these authorities in sharing evidence and providing other types of investigative assistance to advance Canadian and foreign criminal investigations and prosecutions. This is known as
"mutual legal assistance".
