A. Provincial Offences[edit]

Information must be laid within 12 months from the date the alleged offence took place (MVA s 78).

B. Criminal Code Offences[edit]

Section 786(2) of the Criminal Code states that, with respect to summary offences, “[n]o proceedings shall be instituted more than six months after the time when the subject-matter of the proceedings arose”. In contrast, there is no limitation period for indictable offences.
