Statement of offence

Statements of offence are issued when municipal by-laws are violated. These by-laws involve parking, traffic, waste collection, pets and animals, permits, public works, sanitation, public transportation and fire safety, to name a few.

Montréal’s municipal court handles infractions that occurred in the Montréal agglomeration, meaning in one of the city’s 19 boroughs or one of the neighbouring municipalities.

When you receive a statement of offence, you have 30 days to pay it.

That said, as of December 1, you will no longer be able to pay your statements of offence directly at the Ville de Pointe-Claire service counter. We recommend that you use online payment services or go to the nearest BAM (Bureau d’accès Montréal), in the borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro (at City Hall) or the borough of LaSalle (Point de service de la cour municipale – Sud de l’île), or by mail: Cour municipale de la Ville de Montréal – C. P. 11046, succ. Centre-Ville, Montréal (Québec) H3C 4Y2.
