"Today I can confirm that Avid Life Media is offering a $500,000 (£241,065) reward to anyone providing information that leads to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the leak of the Ashley Madison database," said acting staff superintendent Bryce Evans.
Mr Evans detailed the development of the hack, from the moment on 12 July when Avid Life Media employees logged in to their computers and were confronted by a message from the hackers, known as The Impact Team.
The message was accompanied by music - AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", said Mr Evans.
