There are mandatory minimum penalties for impaired driving, over 08, or refusing to provide a breath sample charges. The mandatory minimum penalties may increase if you have been convicted of any of these things in the past depending on when the previous conviction was and whether the Crown seeks to rely on a notice of intention to seek greater punishment.
For a first conviction, the consequences of a conviction include a minimum of a $1,000 fine, a one year diving prohibition, and a criminal record. A number of other consequences, while not imposed by a judge in court, occur automatically pursuant to the Motor Vehicle Act. These include a requirement to pay for and attend the Responsible Driver Program and, after the one year prohibition is finished, paying for the installation and rental of an interlock device in your car, and paying an insurance surcharge for 3 years.
