Bail Verification and Supervision

The Bail Verification and Supervision program is a community-based program provided in partnership with St. Leonard’s Community Services and the Ministry of the Attorney the General.

The Bail program is designed to support the existing justice system and the efficiency of the court system by ensuring that individuals otherwise entitled to release from detention are not detained due to lack of financial resources or community connections.

The Bail program supports individuals, mentally capable of understanding the expectations for the Bail program, who are unable to obtain surety and who are willing and motivated to participate, make positive changes in their lives.

Other criteria include awaiting initial bail proceedings, remanded for show cause hearing, in custody and unable to meet their surety, and/or appealing a bail decision, which has resulted in detention.

Hours of Operation:  Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Later appointments can be accommodated).
