Provincial Offences Court Update: Matters from March 16, 2020 to January 22, 2021 Rescheduled

COVID-19 | October 15, 2020

All in-person Provincial Offences Act (POA) matters scheduled from March 16, 2020 to and including Friday, January 22, 2021 will be adjourned and rescheduled to a later date. If you have a matter scheduled in-person during this time, do not attend court. This applies to all POA courts in Ontario. All court locations will continue to hear matters remotely. A notice of a new court date will be sent to you by mail to the address on file with the court.

If you received a POA Offence Notice (ticket) after March 1, 2020, you have until December 1, 2020 to exercise one of the options set out on the back of the Notice. If you do not respond by December 1, 2020 you may be deemed not to dispute the charge and a Justice of the Peace may enter a conviction for the offence.

If you received a matter that falls under the Administrative Penalty System (APS)  such as parking, pet, mobile and business licensing the extension to December 1, 2020 does not apply.  The Order dated September 10, 2020 from the Chief Justice of the Ontario Justice does not cover Administrative Penalty System matters, only matters that fall under the Provincial Offences Act.

Updated information about court proceedings at the Ontario Court of Justice can be found on the Court’s website at Ontario Court of Justice.

The Provincial Offences Court in Mississauga is located at 950 Burnhamthorpe Road West.
