What are provincial offences?

 

Provincial offences are non-criminal charges, primarily laid by the police, including those committed under the following:

  • Liquor Licence Act - such as being intoxicated in a public place or selling alcohol to a minor
  • Trespass to Property Act - such as entering premises when entry is prohibited or failing to leave premises after being directed to do so
  • City by-laws - such as infractions under Toronto's noise control, property standards and animal control by-laws

The City of Toronto's Court Services manages trials and payments relating to the Provincial Offences Act.
