File an Appeal

An appeal is a request to a higher court to review a lower court trial or other decision. Speak with our licensed paralegals.

Provincial Offences Act Appeals

  1. Appeal Judge’s Authority
      • Uphold trial decision
      • Reverse trial decision
      • Modify trial decision
      • Order a new trial
      • Must show deference to the trial decision
      • No power over demerit points and negative insurance consequences
  2. Appeals Against Conviction (Judge may allow if satisfied that):
      • Conviction was unreasonable or not supported by evidence
      • Trial court erred in law
      • Miscarriage of justice occurred
  3. Appeals Against Sentence (Judge may allow if):
      • Error in principle by the trial court
      • Failure to consider a relevant factor
      • Overemphasis on a factor
      • Sentence is clearly wrong
  4. Timing of Appeal Decision
      • Judge may decide on the day of the hearing
      • May require more time, leading to:
        • Another hearing date for an oral decision
        • Written decision sent to parties
      • Ordering a New Trial
          • Case sent back to the original court
          • Notice sent to the appellant about the court date


  • If you are convicted in respect of a ticket without a hearing, you can apply to have your conviction struck out and a new trial scheduled.
  • You must apply for this “reopening” within fifteen days of becoming aware of the conviction.

Appeal Process

  • A Notice of Appeal is to be filed within 30 days (from the date of conviction)
  • Any Outstanding Fines should be paid and the proof of such payment is to be submitted with the Appeal.
  • Trial Transcripts have to be ordered and submitted with the Appeal.

I shopped around with a few known Traffic Ticket Paralegals and chose POINTTS™ Traffic Tickets because they listened to me and gave me clear options. There were no false promises and nor did they give me any hopes. I want to thank them for getting my charges dismissed and saving my demerits. I will recommend POINTTS™ to anyone who has received a Traffic Ticket and wants to fight it.

Hi Folks, I can’t thank you enough for you assistance in this matter. I am retired and have a great part time job driving customers to and from the dealership.

The process off signing up and paying for the service were flawless online.
Thanks Again for everything.

I called POINTTS™ and spoke with one representative and she was wonderful. They are very helpful, honest and are efficient with their communications. The representative that I had really did get me the best outcome possible given my situation. I would definitely choose them over X-Copper. That amazing!! 10 stars out of 5! Thank you so much. Hopefully won’t need your services in the future, but if I do there will be no hesitation.
