These include:

  • Recognizance: This is an agreement between the accused and the Crown that establishes conditions that must be met in order for the accused to be released from custody.
  • A curfew: The accused must adhere to a set curfew, which is typically imposed in order to ensure they do not re-offend or commit further crimes while on bail.
  • A ban on contact with certain individuals or groups: This condition is often imposed in order to protect victims or witnesses.
  • A ban on attending certain places: This condition is often imposed in order to protect the public from the accused.
  • An order to surrender any weapons: This condition is often imposed in order to prevent the accused from harming themselves or others.
  • An order to undergo drug and alcohol testing: This condition is often imposed in order to ensure the accused does not use drugs or alcohol while on bail.
  • Bail conditions are typically imposed by a judge or justice of the peace. In some cases, they can be negotiated between the Crown and defence counsel.
