Eager: This may help you with what to do with your unpaid fines.  This is specially for TO but I suspect that your city/burgh has a similar agreement.

If you go further into the site, it has another link for unpaid fines in other burghs at: http://www.toronto.ca/POA/poa_offices.htm

Crap... although I retreated to my corner as instructed, I suspect it is I that has earned the mod's wrath tonight.

My apologies to the mods for causing them more work.

(geo -- what colour are the nasty pills?  I think I might have gotten my 'happies' and my 'nasties' mixed up this morning!)

your best bet is to contact your local Provincial Offences Office and let them know thatyou have some outstanding fines. that's what i had to do to find out how much i owed in fines ($700 speeding ticket) got that all paid off and now I'm just waiting to see what happens next

I misplaced a few of them..the bottom line was i was young and dumb and just simply neglected to pay them hoping they  would go away..out of sight out of mind i guess.This however is no reflection of the person i am today,nor the type of work ethic i aspire to..i have learned allot since then.

My advice is to contact them and tell them you have outstanding tickets to pay.  IF they ask why it has taken you so long, then repeat to them what you typed in the quote, well the first sentence anyway.  The 2nd sentence you could leave out.  Not required.

Then, keep whatever paperwork they give you to prove you paid off the tickets, in case the Recruiting Center/CF needs proof.

Case closed. 

No need to go into the "I was a bad boy, and I am ashamed of myself" or the "Scrooge after the visit of the 3 sprits" (I've changed!  The spirits, they did it all in one night!) speeches, IMHO.

Clear it up, if for no other reason than your own personal integrity, which is a HUGE reason...IMHO.

Hey Guys,

Quick question: If I have unpaid tickets from the states, will it affect my enrollment?

Best Regards

Yup... most provinces have agreements with most of the states.... fines and demerit points are transferable.

Own up to what you've done & pay up.
Chimo!

I would venture to say that it would with future clearances if you decide not to pay. If it is only $30 I don't see any reason why you should't or couldn't pay it off quickly.

really? I am curious as to why they wouldn't accept cash. However, it is good that you are going to pay it :) hope everything goes smoothly and hope you get that call soon.
