Why do I need to provide an email address?
You only need to provide an email address if you want your receipt emailed to you. Otherwise, you may print your receipt from the confirmation screen. A paper receipt will not be sent out to you in the regular mail. The province will not use the email address you provide to send you unsolicited mail.

I didn't get an email receipt, even though I entered my email address. Can it be re-sent?
If you did not receive an email confirmation, you may not have entered your email address, you may have entered an incorrect address, or the email may be caught in a spam filter.

To confirm that payment was received, call the court office in Winnipeg at (204-945-3156) between 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, not including holidays.

Why is the balance outstanding amount different than the original fine amount shown on my ticket?
The amount you owe may have increased because:

  • a $50 penalty charge is added if you do not pay or dispute your ticket ON or BEFORE the due date printed on your summons and a default conviction is entered in your absence.
  • a $20 non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee is added to the balance owing if your cheque bounces when you pay your ticket.

Your fine may have gone down because:

  • a payment was made in person, over the phone or by mail
  • the court reduced the fine as a result of an appearance in court
