Payment agreement

Payment agreements can be arranged only if you meet the following conditions:

  • You have pleaded guilty to the violation with which you were charged or a judge has found you guilty of said violation.
  • Your financial situation leads the fines collector to believe that you are capable of paying the fine.
  • Your application is accepted by the fines collector.

How to make payments on a payment agreement

Step 1 : Complete and submit a guilty plea

Guilty pleas submitted without full payment incur additional fees.

To plead guilty, you can:

  1. Submit your plea online (French only);
  2. Print, complete, and submit the formulaire Plaidoyer (plea form) (French only);
  3. Complete and submit the formule de réponse (reply form) (French only) found at the bottom of the fine.

The duly completed printed plea form and reply form can be submitted:

Step 2 : Contact a fines collector by phone

To arrange for a payment agreement, you must call a fines collector at 1 418-641 6179 so they can assess your situation.
