Criminal Summary Offences

In Ontario, paralegals are authorized by the Law Society Act to represent clients in a summary conviction court under the Criminal Code (Canada). A summary conviction is described as a less serious offence punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000 or a term of imprisonment not exceeding six months or both. 

 

Criminal charges are always critical because you will be primarily concerned with the prospect of possibly getting a criminal record, problems with your immigration status, US travel, and police background checks and information sharing causing future employment problems.

If you are charged as following offences:

  • Theft under $5,000

  • Assault

  • Mischief against property

  • Transportation fraud
