View information about this organization

Service Description

Fine Option Program gives people the opportunity to settle provincial fines by doing unpaid, supervised community service work, rather than paying in cash. This is not an alternative to sentencing.

The Ministry of Justice works with town councils, First Nations communities, local non-profit organizations or an individual to administer the program in the community. These Fine Option Agencies assign suitable community service work to people who register to settle fines under the program.

Visit the website for more information.


The program is open only to an individual who has received a fine. This does not apply to companies or corporations. Individuals must obtain an order from court to register for the program. If someone is currently receiving Employment Insurance benefits, they may be eligible to participate in the program as long as participation does not affect their ability to meet Employment Insurance requirements in terms of seeking employment/being employed.

Application Process

To register for the Fine Option Program, you must bring one of the following five forms to your local Fine Option agent:
- Notice of Fine
- Notice of Conviction
- Deemed Parking Conviction Notice
- Fine Order (Alberta)
- Time to Pay (Manitoba)

Call the local coordinator in your region or call the Fine Option Hotline at 306-787-3333 for assistance.
