Regulatory / Quasi-Criminal Offenses – Mississauga & Brampton

Regulatory offences or quasi-criminal offences are a class of crime in which the standard for proving culpability has been lowered so a mens rea (Latin for “guilty mind”) element is not required. Such offences are used to deter potential offenders from dangerous behaviour rather than to impose punishment for moral wrong doing.

Some examples are:

  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Environmental Offenses
  • Part III Provincial Offenses matters
  • AMPs (Administrative Monetary Penalties)
