When do people typically enter into peace bonds?


The two most common situations where people enter into peace bonds are:

• An accused agrees to enter into a peace bond because the Crown will agree to withdraw their charge(s) if they do so. This is the most common situation


• A peace bond hearing is held, and a judge or justice of the peace makes a person enter into a peace bond
