Since May 29, 2000, the City of Guelph has been responsible for the administration and prosecution of most provincial offence charges issued within Guelph-Wellington. The City provides administration for the Ontario Court of Justice with respect to all provincial offences and prosecution services regarding Part I Provincial Offences Act charges (“tickets”). These charges include tickets issued pursuant to the Highway Traffic Act, Liquor Licence Act and similar provincial statutes.

This transfer of responsibilities from the province to the municipality ensures that local governments have more responsibility for justice that impacts the local communities. Further, the public can be assured of a high level of quality service at the local level.
