Provincial Offences are laws enacted by the Provincial Government that regulate a variety of conduct areas. Charges can be laid against both individuals and corporations. They are adjudicated before a Justice of the Peace in the Provincial Offences Court and can lead to a wide variety of sanctions, including fines, licence suspensions, loss of a liquor licence (bars and restaurants), probation and/or jail time.
