Pay by Mail:

Mail your payment to the Provincial Offences Court, 21633 Communications Rd., Blenheim  N0P 1A0.

Send your Offence Notice (ticket) or Notice of Fine and Due Date. Certified cheques should be made payable to 'The Municipality of Chatham-Kent'. Dishonoured cheques collect more fees. We may go to a private collection agency.

Victim Fine Surcharge

At the bottom of every ticket, there are two different amounts shown, the set fine and the total payable. The difference between these two amounts is called the Victim Fine Surcharge (VFS) and is imposed by the provincial government. You must pay a Victim Fine Surcharge on every fine, except parking. It is collected to help victims of crime. The VFS is on a sliding scale based on the amount of the set fine. 

If you have a summons to court your VFS will be calculated after you have been convicted and fined.

Collections and Enforcement

Failure to pay your fine can cause:

  • Your driver's licence to be suspended
  • Licence plate denial
  • Additional fees added
  • Collection activity such as garnishment of wages, filing liens against property, seizure of property, the defaulted fine submitted to a credit bureau

    You might receive a notice or a phone call from our Collections Agency. This means your fine is past due. You can pay your fine directly through the collections agency at that time. Your driver's licence may be suspended and additional fees added.
