Media reports place the officers in Laval, a suburb of Montreal.

Squad members are conducting searches and interviewing witnesses, but spokeswoman Anne-Frederick Laurence says no arrests are expected.

She says today's operation is part of an ongoing investigation.

Raids last week targeted offices belonging to companies in the construction industry. Earlier this month, officers searched the personal residence of Laval Mayor Gilles Vaillancourt.
