Provincial Offences Office


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a provincial State of Emergency has been declared. Do not go to the courthouse. Court operations are limited during this time. Statutory timelines have been extended, including time to exercise your options on the Offence Notice (ticket). All provincial offences trials are being rescheduled. If you are a defendant, a notice of your new court date will be sent to you by mail to the address on file with the court. If you were summoned to appear in court for a provincial offence during the State of Emergency, you do not need to attend, as the matter will be rescheduled. You will be able to handle your tickets and fines once normal business resumes. You are STILL able to pay your fines as listed on this website.

• Defendants who are charged with an offence during this period and wish to exercise their options on the back of a ticket, including disputing the ticket, will have an opportunity to do so once the order suspending all timelines is lifted and statutory timelines resume;

• For additional information regarding your matter, the defendant can contact the municipal court office through the information found at the back of the ticket they have received, and

• That the extension of timelines will now continue up to and including September 11, 2020, which is the maximum period allowed for under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).
