  • Giving verbal or written warnings and providing copies of the appropriate by-laws;
  • Issuing a Part I or Part II ticket in accordance with the Provincial Offences Act (short form wording and set fines);
  • Summonsing a defendant to court, usually initiated for a second, third or more serious offense where a larger fine or a Court Order is appropriate.
Regulatory By-laws
