Find out what to do if you get a parking ticket or tickets for provincial offences like speeding or running a red light, tickets related to animal, pet or business licensing offences.
The Provincial Offences Court at 950 Burnhamthorpe Road West is open for admin functions only, including filing for a trial date, early resolution date or screening appointment, paying a penalty notice or provincial offence certificate, applying for the reopening of a case or extension of time to pay, and general inquiries.
You must physically distance and wear a face mask or face covering in the building.
All in-person Provincial Offences Act (POA) matters scheduled from March 16, 2020 through 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.
All court locations will continue to hear matters remotely. A notice of your new court date will be sent to you by mail to the address on file with the court.
In accordance with section 85 of the POA, the Chief Justice of the Ontario Court of Justice has extended most timelines until December 1, 2020.
If you received a POA ticket after March 1, 2020, you have until December 1, 2020 to perform one of the options set out on the back of the ticket. If you don’t respond by December 1, you may be deemed not to dispute the charge and a Justice may enter a conviction for the offence.
