Serious Traffic Offences and other Provincial Act Offences:
Ontario has enacted thousands of laws under provincial legislation that regulate conduct. What many people do not know is that these provincial offences can carry consequences that mirror those in the Criminal Code, including fines, probation, and even imprisonment. When corporations are convicted of a provincial or regulatory offence, the financial penalties and reputational damage to the company can be especially severe.
At Edelson Law, our team of lawyers will defend you or your business if you are charged with a quasi-criminal, provincial or regulatory offence. We have represented individuals and businesses charged with serious offences under the Highway Traffic Act (Part III Summons only), the Liquor Licence and Control Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Police Services Act, and even the Dog Owner’s Liability Act, among other provincial legislation. In so doing, we have saved people from losing their licenses, their businesses, their livelihoods, and sometimes, even their liberty.
If you have been charged with a serious traffic offence or under some other provincial legislation, do not simply plead guilty. Instead, contact us today.
