Provincial Offences Defaulted Fine Collection

On December 4, 2000, the responsibility for the collection of fines in default under the Provincial Offences Act (i.e. Highway Traffic Act, Liquor Licence Act, Environment Protection Act, etc.) was devolved to the Regional Municipality of Durham, along with the administration and prosecution of charges laid by police and other enforcement agencies under provincial statutes and municipal by-laws.

If a fine remains unpaid and goes into default, the Provincial Offences Collection Office will pursue collection activity against the offender. Some of these activities may include notification to Credit Reporting Agencies, Driver's Licence/Plate suspension, and if required, pursuing civil enforcement action (i.e. Garnishment of Wages/Bank Account, Writs of Seizure & Sale, Personal Writs).

Other services offered by the POA Collection Office include payment processing of default fines and establishing payment arrangements, etc.

The Provincial Offences Collection office is located at 605 Rossland Road. East, Main Floor, Whitby, ON   L1N 6A3. The office hours are Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. For telephone inquiries please contact 905-666-6243 or Toll Free at 1-866-223-3315. You can also email us at:
