Here's How to Fight a Ticket in Quebec

How to Fight a Ticket in Quebec

Complete the "reply-coupon" attached to your ticket & check the "Not Guilty" box on the coupon.

Draft a letter explaining why you feel you didn't commit a speeding offense. Start the letter along with your current contact knowledge (first name/surname, address & postal code), the reference statement: "I plead NOT guilty." & your ticket reference number from the top right corner of your ticket. For example,


(I plead NOT guilty: TICKET REFERENCE # __ )

Sign & date your documents (reply-coupon & letter).

Hand in your documentation physically within 30 days of receipt of your ticket at:

Bureau des infractions et amendes (BIA)
1200, route de l'Église
Sainte-Foy (Québec) G1V 4X1

In case you cannot visit the location, mail the documents to the same address, forward by fax to (418) 644-8486 or e mail to amendes@justice.gouv.qc.ca

Wait for a response from the BIA.:

a. A court trial date---if the prosecutor decides your case must go to court.
b. A closed file statement---if the charges were dropped.
