70 Centre Ave by fightyourtickets.ca

On July 6, 2009 a new court house opened in Toronto at 70 Centre Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1R5.

70 Centre Avenue is located in downtown Toronto, 1 Street East of University Avenue, North of Dundas Street East and South of Edward Street.

This newest addition to Toronto’s current court houses, 70 Centre Avenue has opened up with four courtrooms (known as C-1, C-2, C-3 and C-4). These are small court rooms and have been added to currently deal with parking tickets, GO Train tickets and Toronto Transit Commission (T.T.C.) tickets.

The times that have been set for trials in courtrooms C-1, C-2, C-3 and C-4 are 9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

70 Centre Ave - located on the exterior front door

When your trial is scheduled to proceed, you will come to this address.  First of all you will be greeted by four (4) Court Officers who will ask you to empty out your pockets into a little plastic tray. This will include any metal object on your person (keys, change, coin, lighter, pen, cell phone, iPod, MPS/DVD player or anything else that may trigger the security alarm as you walk through the security door). This experience is similar to the security at the Airport, but you don’t have to take your shoes off for the flight (you can now keep your shoes on for all domestic flights within Canada). You will also be asked what time your trial is scheduled for.

One of the Court Officers will inform you that you must walk straight ahead and turn right down the short flight of stairs to the courtroom where your trial is scheduled. There are four court rooms (C-1, C-2, C-3 and C-4) and you will have to check the lists posted outside of the court room to see if your name appears on the post.  You will notice that the area just outside of the courtrooms is extremely confined with only a few seats.  If you need to sit down and read your material or make any last minute adjustments, you can go back upstairs where there are plenty of chairs to sit down.

All Courts in Toronto will make sure you go through the security assembly line (much like the airport) before entering the Courts. The rule is that you can't be snacking (water is acceptable) or packing.

As soon as you walk in to 70 Centre Ave - you'll see this NO FOOD or DRINK sign (with the exception of water)

The shocking thing about this courthouse is that although this building has been renovated (it was a building housing Legal Aid and has now been converted into a court house) it only contains court rooms that are operational.  There are plenty of service counters, but there is no one in the empty offices. There are no staff or clerks to request or obtain information from, there is no place to file a notice of motion or even to pay a fine. The offices, which have been built with service counters have no staff within the offices. In fact, the furniture is still in its’ plastic merchandise wrapping and this court house opened months ago. On October 6, 2009 the new courthouse will be three (3) months old, but there will be no staff to assist defendants who walk through the door.

It is disturbing that the City of Toronto is opening and operating thiscourthouse with only one objective in mind; raising revenues generated by those who allegedly PARK – FAIL TO DEPOSIT FEE IN MACHINE contrary to the CITY OF TORONTO MUNICIPAL CODE; CHAPTER 910-4A(1) or FAIL TO CANCEL GO TRAIN TICKET in accordance with the contrary to the GREATER TORONTO TRANSIT AUTHORITY BYLAW # 2 Section 2.17 or who are charged with one of many offences found within the Toronto Transit Commission. There is no commitment whatsoever to service defendants who cannot afford to wait an hour or even longer at the Court Services Office around the corner at 137 Edward Street, 2nd Floor in Toronto.

The times of the trials given for City of Toronto Parking Tickets, GO Train Tickets and Toronto Transit Commission (T.T.C) Tickets are 9 a.m. , 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

    what is the reasonable time to get a trial date after the offense. and can you argue it in court?

  2. Admin says:

    Hi Sara:
    the Supreme Court suggests 8-10 months to proceed to trial as a guideline, along with an intake time of a couple of months (in Toronto under 14 months is reasonable – anything in excess of 14 months is considered unreasonable and can be argued).

    This argument under section 11(b) of the Constitution can be argued in court – see http://fightyourtickets.ca/tickets/application-for-stay-of-proceedings/.

    Its discussing, the sole purpose this court house to generate
    money for city. This proves there are quotas’ for tickets ! I see people cell
    phones driving and texting, they never get caught. Recently a guy ran a
    red light and hit my sister crossing the road, he failed to remain. Witnesses
    had to chase car. So much for catching bsd guys. May be the police are
    afraid they may get s punch in the nose if they a big bad driver ?
