Unpaid Provincial Offences Act fines due now
The City of Toronto is currently reviewing defaulted Provincial Offences Act
(POA) fines. The majority of these fines were inherited from the Ministry of
Attorney General when the City assumed responsibility for Toronto area
Provincial Offences Courts early this year.

On November 1, defaulted POA fines will result in the suspension of driver's
licences as permitted under Provincial legislation. Individuals can find out
whether they have any outstanding fines by calling 416-338-7320.

"If you have an outstanding fine, this is your opportunity to pay the fine and
possibly avoid the consequences of a driver's licence suspension," said Barry
Randell, director of Court Services. "It can take up to four days to have your
licence reinstated, and the fine must be paid in full. There is also a $100
reinstatement fee payable to the Province in order to remove the suspension."

Payments of POA fines can be made at any Provincial Offences Office, calling
416-338-7679 or by mailing a cheque payable to Toronto Court Services, 137
Edward St., 2nd floor, Toronto ON M5G 2P8.

There are five City of Toronto Provincial Offences Court locations:

· 137 Edward St. - 2nd floor
· Old City Hall, 60 Queen St. W. - Rm# 5A
· 2265 Keele St.
· 47 Sheppard Ave. E.
· 1530 Markham Rd.
