If you are unable to pay your fine after a judge or justice of the peace orders one to be paid, you may call your local Fine Option Program to ask about community service work.
You may be eligible to participate in the Fine Option Program if a court:
- has imposed a fine not exceeding $2,000.00 for each charge; and
- has granted time to pay.
Please note the Fine Option Program may be offered through either Probation Services, John Howard Society (Yellowknife) or the local Community Justice Committee. This may vary from community to community depending on the availability of services and supports for the Fine Option Program.
