What are the different types of provincial offence notices The Regional Municipality of York en-US

What are my options if I receive an offence notice (ticket) and how soon do I have to do something in response to the ticket?

If the Enforcement Officer serves you with an Offence Notice (ticket), you have 15 days to exercise one of the three options listed on the back of the ticket or you may be found guilty without a hearing for failing to respond to the ticket.

Please read and follow the instructions provided on the back of the offence notice and choose an option within 15 days of receiving your Offence Notice (ticket):


Option #1: Plea of Guilty – Voluntary Payment of Total Payable

This is an out-of-court payment option. A defendant who has been served with an Offence Notice and chooses not to contest the charge may make payment to the court office on the back of the Offence Notice. Instructions are set out on the Payment Notice.

These payments may be made in person at the court office indicated on the back of the Offence Notice or at any other Provincial Offences Court office in the Province. You can also mail a cheque or money order payable to The Regional Municipality of York, or you can insert your Visa or MasterCard number on the Payment Notice, sign it and mail your payment along with the Offence Notice and the Payment Notice, to the court office indicated on the back of the Offence Notice or the Payment Notice. Alternatively, a payment may be made online by clicking on the Paytickets.ca link and using Visa or MasterCard. An additional fee is payable if you chose to pay online.

The defendant must pay the "total payable" in full. Payment is deemed to be a plea of guilty. Demerit points for certain Highway Traffic Act offences may apply.

If a partial payment is made, or if the defendant's cheque is returned for insufficient funds, the fine will not be considered paid and an NSF charge may be applied.


Option #2: Early Resolution

This is an informal meeting with a prosecutor to try to resolve your charge or charges without going to trial. The investigating officer does not attend the meeting and it is not a trial date. If the charge cannot be resolved, you still have a right to a trial.

Check the box indicating you wish to meet with a prosecutor and either mail the offence notice to the address of the court office set out on the ticket, or attend in person at the court office to file it (a licensed paralegal, lawyer, friend or family member can file it for you). Make a copy of the Offence Notice (ticket) for your records.

If you live more than 75 km from the court office referred to on your ticket, you can request a meeting by phone. Check MapQuest or Google for the driving distance from your home to the address of the court office. If you request a phone meeting and you live closer than 75 km, a meeting will be scheduled requiring you to attend in person. You will be sent a meeting notice to the address on file. You must notify the court if your address changes.

Effective January 1, 2017 option #2 Early Resolution will be replaced with Option #2 Walk in Guilty. Please note there will be a transition period and if you receive an offence notice with the Early Resolution option a meeting will be scheduled if requested. More information can be obtained by contacting the court office directly. This option will be available to those who do not wish to dispute the charge but want to plead guilty before a justice of the peace and make submissions as to penalty (e.g. amount of fine and/or time to pay). Before pleading with submissions as to penalty, it is important that you understand what a justice of the peace can and cannot do when you plead guilty under this option. 

The justice of the peace can

  • Reduce the amount of the set fine
  • Give you an extension of time in which you can pay the fine

The justice of the peace cannot

  • Reduce the charge; e.g. a speeding charge of 20 kilometres over the limit cannot be reduced to 15 kilometres
  • Remove or reduce the demerit points to be applied. Demerit points are applied by the Ministry of Transportation upon conviction and the court cannot change the demerit points to be applied.

You must attend in person at the court office shown on the back of your ticket to plead guilty before a justice of the peace. For best results, please call the court office ahead of time to ensure judicial availability.


Option #3: Trial Option

The trial option requires you or your agent (this can include a licensed paralegal, a lawyer or a family member who fills out the form on your behalf) to attend the address of the court office set out on the ticket to complete and file a Notice of Intention to Appear (NIA). A trial date will be set and a Notice of Trial will be mailed to you at the address indicated on your NIA indicating your trial time, place and date. It is your responsibility to advise the court of any change to your mailing address if your address changes after filing your NIA.

What are my options if I receive an Offence Notice (ticket) and how soon do I have to do something in response to the ticket? The Regional Municipality of York en-US

What happens if I do not choose an option and do nothing?

Failure to choose an option within 15 days of receiving your Offence Notice (ticket) will result in the Certificate of Offence being placed before a Justice of the Peace, who will review the Certificate of Offence (this is the charging document). If it is “complete and regular on its face”, a conviction will be entered and the court will order that you pay the set fine. In addition, costs and a victim fine surcharge are added automatically. An additional cost of $5 for a default conviction will be added to the total payable. The charge will be quashed if the Certificate of Offence is not “complete and regular on its face”.

What happens if I do not choose an option and do nothing? The Regional Municipality of York en-US

Why are there two amounts on my ticket?

One amount is the set fine and the other is your total payable amount. The Total Payable is the sum of the set fine, plus $5.00 costs for service of the Offence Notice plus the applicable Victim Fine Surcharge (VFS). The VFS is imposed automatically under s. 60.1 of the Provincial Offences Act (POA). The various amounts for the VFS are set under O. Reg 161/00 made under the POA. The amount varies depending on the amount of the fine. Proceeds from the VFS are used to maintain and expand provincial services to victims of crime. The court costs are also imposed automatically under s. 60 of the POA. The various cost amounts are set under O. Reg 945 made under the POA.

Why are there two amounts on my ticket? The Regional Municipality of York en-US

What if I have been convicted and I need more time to pay the fine?

If you have been convicted of an offence and cannot pay the fine by the due date, and if you need more time to pay the fine, visit the designated court office on the back of your Offence Notice. You will be asked to fill out a form. This form will require you to fill in all of the information regarding your offence including why you need more time to pay, how much you have paid so far and a specific date that you would like it extended to, etc. You may be asked to appear before a Justice of the Peace to explain why you need more time to pay.

What if I have been convicted and I need more time to pay the fine? The Regional Municipality of York en-US

What happens if I cannot attend the trial date that was given to me?

You or your agent must attend at the court office shown on the Notice of Trial to complete, serve and file a Notice of Motion requesting a change of the trial date. The Notice of Motion must explain why it is that you cannot proceed on the scheduled trial date (e.g. conflicts with business trip or vacation, an essential witness is not available due to illness, vacation etc.). The motion requesting the adjournment may be heard on any date prior to your trial date that the court is sitting, but it must be served on the prosecutor's office and filed with the court at the court office shown on the Notice of Trial at least three (3) business days (does not include weekends and/or Ontario Statutory holidays) prior to the hearing of the Motion.

It is important to note that the date for the hearing of your motion is a court date that you or your agent must attend in order to request your new trial date. The court may grant or refuse your adjournment request.

If you cannot attend court on your trial date and you cannot bring a motion on 3 days’ notice before the trial date as a result of a last-minute emergency, you may send someone to the court on your trial date in order to request a new trial date. If you have any documents to support the fact that you have an unexpected emergency, please bring these documents with you to show the prosecutor and the court. The court may or may not grant a change of trial date. If the adjournment is granted, a new trial date will be set. If the adjournment is refused, the court will proceed to deal with the charge. Make sure that the person you send is at least 16 years old, has your authority to appear on your behalf and that they are able to explain the reason why you could not attend your trial. If you wish, you may also give the person your authority in writing to speak to the prosecutor about a possible resolution to the charge(s). You must give them the authority to enter into a guilty plea to the charge or to a lesser charge, as well as the amount of the fine that you are proposing to pay or willing to agree to. The court is not bound to accept a plea resolution or a fine proposal.al date. The court may grant or refuse your adjournment request.

Please note that as a result of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in R. v. Jordan, the prosecution office will no longer process consent adjournments at the prosecution front counter unless it involves an unexpected emergency. If you have such a situation, you must bring any documents with you to the prosecutors’ office to support the fact that the situation is an emergency, otherwise the prosecutor may not consent to your adjournment request.

What is disclosure and how do I request disclosure?

Disclosure is a copy of the officer's notes and any other relevant evidence that may exist involving the charge against you. If you receive a ticket and you wish to receive disclosure prior to your trial, send a Request for Disclosure to the Regional prosecutor's office at the court location indicated on your Offence Notice (ticket).

If I want to represent myself at trial, what is the trial process?

The Ontario Court of Justice has developed a Guide for Defendants in Provincial Offences Cases. The Guide provides defendants with general information about the court process for Provincial Offences cases. It does not cover every circumstance that might arise in your case.

A simplified explanation of the Trial Process prepared by the Regional Prosecutor's Office can be obtained by contacting the Prosecutor's office, or by clicking on the link for pdf PDF format or doc MS Word format.

The trial process may involve other issues not covered in these document (for example, Charter Applications, Constitutional Challenges, etc.). You are advised to seek independent legal advice from a licensed paralegal or a lawyer before choosing to proceed to trial on your own. You may be asked by the Justice of the Peace on your trial date whether you have sought independent legal advice, requested disclosure and whether you understand the trial process. Your trial may not proceed and may be adjourned if the Justice of the Peace is not satisfied that you understand the trial process and that you are ready to proceed to trial without legal representation or disclosure.

Please arrive at least 15-30 minutes before your scheduled trial time so that you can meet with the prosecutor to discuss your case.

If I have a speeding ticket, what can happen to the charge?

If the officer has reduced the speed on your ticket, and you proceed to trial, the court has the power to amend the rate of speed to a higher rate of speed if the evidence accepted by the court indicates that you were actually travelling at a higher rate of speed.

If the officer has not reduced the rate of speed, you can request an Early Resolution (ER) Meeting to meet with a prosecutor to try to resolve the charge at a lower rate of speed. The prosecutor may or may not agree to do this, depending on your driving record and the rate of speed shown on the ticket.

If the appeal involves a charge where you were served with a yellow summons (a Part III charge), you must fill out and serve your Notice of Appeal for Part III Appeals Application Form at the prosecutor’s office at Suite 225, 465 Davis Dr., Newmarket (or appropriate Ministry for certain offences) and file appeal forms within 30 days of your conviction at the courthouse located at 50 Eagle Street West, Newmarket, Ontario.

The guides below contain more information on the required forms to be filled out and the process involved.

Guide for Part I & II Appeals  (French version)
Guide for Part III Appeals (French version

In order to file an appeal, you must either pay the fine, plus applicable costs and Victim Fine Surcharge into court (s. 111(1) of the POA), OR file an Application to File an Appeal Without Paying the Fine and an Order of Recognizance (s. 111(2) and (3)).

You will have to appear before a Judge of the appeal court to explain why you cannot pay the fine. If the Judge is satisfied that you cannot pay the fine, you will be required to sign a Recognizance promising to pay an amount the appeal court thinks is appropriate. Your agent cannot sign the Recognizance. Only you can. The amount of the Recognizance becomes due and payable if you or your agent do not appear to argue your appeal.

If you have been convicted after a trial or after pleading guilty, you will have to order and pay for three copies of a transcript. A minimum deposit of $25.00 will be required when ordering the transcript. The deposit may be higher depending on the length of your trial.

You will be contacted by phone once the transcript is ready to pick up and are required to pay for the transcript in full before it will be released to you. You are responsible for paying for the transcript, even if you decide not to pursue your appeal. You will have to serve the transcript on the relevant prosecuting agency and file a copy with proof of service with the appeal court at 50 Eagle St. West, Newmarket.

Should your appeal go forward, you or your agent will appear before a Judge of the appeal court to argue your appeal. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled hearing time in order to meet with the prosecutor to discuss your appeal before court starts.

The Regional Senior Judge has also issued a Practice Direction involving the scheduling of Applications and Appeals and the forms to be used.

You must then appear before a Judge of the appeal court and request additional time to file your appeal. You must explain what your grounds of appeal will be, when you first became aware of the conviction and why you did not appeal within the 30 day time period or as soon as you found out, or should have found out, about your conviction.
