Enforcement Approach
The decision to issue a summons or offence notice is at the discretion of the investigating Officer. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the investigation an officer may choose any of the following enforcement steps:

  • Educating the public (when Officer attends location in person)
  • Verbal warnings
  • Zero tolerance approach for reckless disregard for the community
  • Escalating the matter to Peel Regional Police if required
  • Issuing a written Notice of Non-Compliance for violations under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act or the Emergency Measures By-Law
  • Charges for violations under By-law ranges from $750 to $100,000 depending on the nature of the offence

COVID-19 Emergency Measures By-law
