What can I do if I can not appear in court on my court date?
You must arrange for someone to appear on your behalf. For example, a friend, duty counsel, lawyer, native counsel). Court Services staff CANNOT appear on your behalf. Failure to appear in Court may result in a warrant being issued for your arrest.
Failure to appear in Court on traffic violations may result in a conviction in your absence. You will also be subject to late payment charges. The amount of the late payment charge will be $20 or 20% of the voluntary payment amount, whichever is greater.
