Dispute a Penalty Notice issued on or after November 20, 2017
Please note that you must be the named person on the penalty notice in order to proceed. If you are not the named person on the penalty notice, you must submit a completed authorization form as part of your request for screening.
Under The Municipal By-Law Enforcement Act (MBEA) and the City of Winnipeg MBEA Enabling By-Law you may request that a screening officer review your penalty notice.
Under the MBEA Enabling By-Law, the screening officer may, under certain circumstances, uphold, reduce or cancel the penalty.
The screening officer will review the information you provide and the evidence provided by the enforcement officer at the time the penalty notice was issued. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the penalty notice, the screening officer may request supporting documentation.
Request for a Review by a Screening Officer will not be accepted after close of business (5 p.m.) on the 30th day after you have received, or are deemed to have received, the Final Notice.
Should you disagree with the decision of the screening officer, you may request that the matter be heard by a Provincially-appointed adjudicator. There is a $25 fee for requesting an adjudication, which will be refunded should you be successful. When you receive the decision of the screening officer, additional information on the adjudication process will be provided to you.
