Provincial Offences Tickets

As indicated on the back of your ticket there are three options available to all defendants and there are 15 days in which to choose an option:

1) PAY THE FINE + more detail

2) REQUEST EARLY RESOLUTION + more detail

3) REQUEST A TRIAL (NOT GUILTY) + more detail

 

Important Notice

Once 30 days has passed from the time you received the offence notice (or ticket), the charge will be placed on a Fail to Respond docket and a Justice of the Peace will review the offence notice and may convict you in absentia. Once you have been convicted it is too late to choose any of the options indicated on the back of your ticket. A Conviction Notice (Notice of Fine and Due Date) will be sent to the address noted on your ticket upon conviction by the Justice of the Peace.

Please note that a charge of $35.00 will be applied to all cheques dishonoured by the banks.

Trial Information

Notice of Trial


You should receive a Notice in the mail indicating your trial date in approximately 4-6 weeks after making the “in person” request for a trial.
If you do not receive this notice, you should contact the court office to make the appropriate inquiries.

Re-Opening a Conviction


If you have already been convicted of the offence you may attend at the court office to apply for a Re-opening of your matter.
A Justice of the Peace may strike a conviction and re-open a case under very limited conditions. You must attend the court office within 15 days of becoming aware of the conviction and complete the Reopening application. The completed application will be reviewed in your absence by a Justice of the Peace and you will be required to call within 2-5 days of submitting your re-opening application to find out the result. If your request is granted, a new trial will be set. Since an Affidavit must be completed as part of your application, please ensure that you bring proper photo identification to swear to your written statement of facts.

Requesting a Change of Trial Date


You should attend at the court where your trial is scheduled at least 10 days before the scheduled date of your trial.

You will (or need to) complete a Notice of Motion advising the court of your request to change your trial date and then swear an Affidavit in support of your request. The motion will be scheduled for the next available court date (approximately 3-7 days later) at which time you must attend so that your motion may be spoken to. If your motion is granted, a new trial date will be issued at the motion hearing.
If there are less than 10 days before your trial date, then you or someone acting as your agent must attend at the trial date to request an adjournment at that time.

 

If granted, a new trial date shall be issued. You are obligated to confirm your address with the court and to follow-up with the court to get this new trial date, especially if there appears to be a problem with your mail delivery.

Driver's Licence Suspensions

If a suspension is in place as a result of unpaid fines, you must pay the total amount outstanding at any Provincial Offences Court in Ontario.

After payment is made you are required to go to your local Ministry of Transportation office and pay a $150.00 reinstatement fee. As long as the reinstatement fee has been paid your licence will be reinstated within 3-4 days of paying the total outstanding amount at the Provincial Offences Court. It takes 3-4 business days to get your licence back as a result of the processes involved in applying the payment to your case and notifying the Ministry of Transportation. Once the Provincial Offences Court receives payment, the Defaulted Fines Control Centre is advised electronically through an overnight batch reporting system. The Defaulted Fines Control Centre administers all defaulted fines for the Province of Ontario. Once they have been notified they will clear the suspense from their records and then notify Ministry of Transportation (MTO) within 2 days. MTO will then require an additional day to update your driving record in their system.

The Ministry of Transportation sends out the suspension notices after they have suspended a driver's licence. If you have any questions please contact the Ministry of Transportation.
