The Fine Option Program gives people the opportunity to settle fines by doing unpaid, supervised community service work rather than paying cash. The Ministry of Justice works with town councils, First Nations communities, local non-profit organizations or an individual to administer the Fine Option Program in the community under a contractual agreement. These organizations or individuals, called fine option agencies, assign suitable community service work to people who register to settle fines under the program. The agencies also advise the court of the outcome of the assignment.
The John Howard Society of Saskatchewan currently operates the program in the cities of Regina, Saskatoon, and Moose Jaw. This website is specifically related to those cities, and cannot facilitate volunteer work in any other location. If you are having trouble finding who to connect with in your area, feel free to reach out and we will do our best to connect you with your local fine option agency.
