Tickets are issued mainly for violations of municipal regulations (In French Only) and Québec laws, such as the Highway Safety Code. They may be issued by a police officer, firefighter, inspector, or other agents of a city under the court’s jurisdiction, in the performance of their duties.
To avoid having a judgment made in your absence or being charged additional fees, you must ensure that the municipal court receives either a plea or full payment within 30 days of your receipt of a ticket. If you plead guilty and do not include a payment or include only partial payment with your guilty plea, you will be charged additional fees.
