Canadian Police Information Center - How it can help you!

Did you know…? If you suspect that a motor vehicle or property has been stolen there is a program through the Canadian Police Information Center to search Canada’s national database to find out.

The Canadian Police Information Center (CPIC) is a Canadian National database that allows the public to search to see if a motor vehicle or property has been reported stolen.  Through this database the public can search:

  • Vehicles by VIN (vehicle identification number)

  • Property by serial number

  • Boats by name, hull identification number, licence number, registration number

  • Boat motors by serial number and type

  • Bicycles by serial number

  • Firearms by serial number

To search vehicals and property follow this link:


If following a search you receive a positive result, contact the local authorities immediately.

The CPIC also provides law enforcement agencies the ability to access information on a number of matters. It is Canada's only national law enforcement networking computer system ensuring officers all across the country can access the same information. It also offers a link for the law enforcement officers to use the national information-sharing system which can link criminal justice and law enforcement partners across Canada and internationally.

Since the 1900's...

Born under the name George Hutcheson, Hutcheson, Reynolds & Caswell Ltd. began providing insurance policies in Muskoka since the early 1900s. Bernard Reynolds joined the firm in the 1940s and purchased the firm from George Hutcheson in 1967. Finally, in 1980, David Caswell joined the company's ranks to complete Hutcheson, Reynolds and Caswell. We have grown along with our name and provide the same dedication to superior customer service and top-notch insurance coverage that George Hutcheson was famous for over 100 years ago.
