Quinte West By-Law Officers Working with OPP to Enforce Emergency Orders

Posted on Wednesday April 08, 2020

Quinte West By-Law Officers are now working with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) to enforce emergency orders under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA), as authorized by the Provincial Government.

These orders prohibit persons from:

  • Accessing outdoor recreational amenities that are closed to the public

  • Physical gatherings of more than 5 people

  • Operating non-essential businesses

  • Individuals known or suspected to be in contravention of quarantine requirements

The orders are in place to protect the community against the spread of COVID-19.

Violators may be asked to provide their name, birth date and address to the OPP/By-Law Officer. Failure to comply with an order carries a $750 fine or $1000 for obstructing any person in exercising a power if a provincial offences officer issues a ticket. Additionally, failing to comply with an emergency order can carry punishments of up to one-year imprisonment or a fine of up to $100,000 for an individual, $500,000 for a director of a corporation, or $10,000,000 for a corporation itself.

"It is critical that people practicing physical distancing and stay at home when possible," says Jim Harrison, Mayor of Quinte West. "We’ve been getting numerous complaints about increased activity levels and risk-taking. We understand how difficult the last weeks have been, but we need to keep taking the necessary steps to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and our front line workers safe.  "   

By-Law Enforcement Officers will conduct patrols and respond to calls from residents. Individuals reporting non-compliance are asked to exercise good judgement and only report blatant infractions. Call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or use their Online Reporting Tool. You can also contact City Hall at 613-392-2841 or

The City reminds residents that green spaces and trails within Quinte West are open for walking only. Congregating with other people, even when practicing social distancing, is prohibited.
