Contraventions Act Fund

Government of Canada


The Contraventions Act allows for the creation of a ticketing scheme for federal regulatory offences designated as contraventions as an alternative to the summary conviction procedure in the Criminal Code.  The Act decriminalizes certain federal offences, ensures more effective application of federal statutes and reduces the workload of the courts by allowing the voluntary payment of fines.

Federal contraventions are prosecuted using provincial ticketing schemes. The Contraventions Act Administration and Enforcement Agreements” signed between the federal government and its provincial, territorial and municipal partners to implement and enforce contraventions cover issues related to the prosecution process, enforcement of fines, sharing of fines and the requirements to guarantee official language minority rights that the provinces and territories assume on behalf of the federal government.


  • Departments and agencies of the provinces and territories. 
  • Municipalities designated by the provincial and territorial governments as being responsible for providing judicial activities and extra-judicial services in both official languages.
