What Conditions Can I Expect From My Bail Release?

The types of conditions that can be ordered as part of a release order vary depending on the accused"™s type of release. An accused may be released on his own recognizance (pledging an amount of money), on a recognizance with sureties, or on a recognizance with a deposit.

Depending on a number of factors, including the seriousness of the offence, if released on a recognizance with sureties, a court may require the accused to:

  • Reside at a specific address;
  • Have a curfew;
  • Be on house arrest; or
  • Be on house arrest with an ankle monitor

A court can order the accused comply with a number of conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • To remain within the territorial jurisdiction;
  • To deposit their passport;
  • To notify the police of any change in address, phone number, or employment;
  • The report at certain times to the police or a Bail Supervisor;
  • To not communicate with the complainant or other parties;
  • To not attend at certain addresses or locations;
  • To not possess any weapons as defined by the Criminal Code; and
