Contrary to popular opinion, if you are an Ontario driver and you are found guilty of a charge of driving over the speed limit in Quebec, you are liable for any fines, penalties and other consequences that may result.

Traffic Violation Charges When In Quebec

As an Ontario resident, if you are convicted of a speeding ticket or other traffic tickets in Quebec, you can face the following penalties, depending on the infraction, its severity and your current driving record:

  • Fines 
  • Demerit points
  • Driver license suspension
  • Increased insurance premiums
  • Being deemed a “high risk” driver or being refused car insurance
  • Traffic violations will appear on your driver record for three years or more

Quebec Speeding Tickets Transfer To Ontario

Quebec speeding tickets transfer to Ontario drivers according to legal agreements that exist between the two provinces.

If they get Quebec speeding tickets, Ontario residents will face “home jurisdiction” penalties. Simply put, that means, if you have an Ontario licence and you are convicted after getting a speeding violation in Quebec, you will face the same penalties and consequences as if you committed the speeding offence in Ontario.

For example, Quebec drivers who get a speeding ticket for travelling 11 to 20 km/h over the posted limit may receive one demerit point on conviction. However, Ontario drivers convicted of the same speeding violation in Quebec may get up to three demerit points.

Whether it’s a speeding ticket or other traffic violation in Quebec, it is important that Ontario drivers do not just plead guilty and pay the fine. Considering the potential consequences, it is best to seek the legal advice of X-Copper’s experienced team of experts who have successfully defended Ontario residents against Quebec driving charges.
