Disputing the Charge

Disputing the charge means that you do not admit to committing the offence with which you were charged.

If you want to dispute your charge and request a hearing, go to Provincial Offences Court at 373 Broadway in Winnipeg, or any Provincial Court Office during the response period shown on your ticket and ask to talk to court staff. Court staff see clients on a first-come, first-serve basis, so wait times may vary.

You can also call the Provincial Offences Court at 204-945-3156 in Winnipeg or toll free at 1-800-282-8069 (ext.3156) to request a hearing.

It is your responsibility to appear on the hearing date provided.
