How Court Services serves you

Did you know York Region Court operations are the second largest in all of Ontario based on the number of charges filed? York Region Court Services administers the Provincial Offences Act and provides two distinct functions – Court Administration and Prosecution.

Provincial Offenses keep York Region’s Courts staff busy. In June 2017 staff provided a presentation update and report on their operations to Regional Council.

Additional highlights captured in the Court Services Annual 2017 Report include:

  • 169,000-plus customers served in-person or by telephone
  • 160,515-charges filed, a five per cent increase over 2016
  • 33,842-disclosure requests processed, representing an 8.5-per cent increase from 2016
  • 100,000-plus matters dealt with in trial courts

One of the most common reason’s York Region residents contact Court Services or attend trial is to take care of a ticket (also called a Provincial Offence Notice). Provincial offences include speeding, careless driving, not wearing a seat belt, being intoxicated or selling alcohol to a minor, trespass to property, noise, zoning and non-smoking by-laws.

If you receive a ticket you must choose one of the three options listed on the back of your ticket within 15 days. It’s important to take one of three routes in order to resolve your ticket, as failure to do anything could result in conviction, which will incur additional costs.
