Options and Timelines
Option 1 - Early payment
The City must receive the early payment within 15 days of Parking Infraction Notice (PIN) issue date.
*This option does not apply to any Federal parking tickets ("F" tickets). The set fine on a Federal ticket is in effect immediately.
Option 2 - Set Fine payment
The Set Fine is in effect immediately, unless an Early Payment (Option 1) amount is shown on the parking ticket. Payment of the set fine amount should be paid before the conviction fees or other costs are added.
Option 3 – Trial option / Initiate a review
Initiate a review
To initiate a review you must attend a First Attendance Facility located at one of the Provincial Offences Court Offices. At this meeting you will have the opportunity to discuss the parking ticket before deciding if the trial option is necessary. No appointment is required as this is a first come, first serve facility.
To request a trial you must attend in person at one of the Provincial Offences Court Offices.
You cannot set a trial for a parking ticket by phone or mail.
What if you fail to respond on time?
Failure to choose one of the options listed, or failure to pay your parking ticket on time can result in:
- Additional costs (court fees or collection fees)
- Inability to renew your license plate sticker until outstanding fines have been paid
- Notification to a credit reporting agency
- Civil enforcement, which may include garnishment of wages and/or bank accounts, fine amounts being added to property tax bills, or registering a lien against property and assets
In order to avoid enforcement actions, parking fines should be paid on or before the Due Date indicated on the Parking Infraction Notice, Notice of Impending Conviction or Notice of Fine and Due Date.
If the ticket is past due you may contact the Provincial Offences Collections Section at 613-580-2638 or 1-800-477-4195 for further information.
