Partner Assault Response (PAR) program

This is a court facilitated counselling program for domestic related offenders. If you have been charged with an offence against your spouse, common-law partner, boyfriend, or girlfriend, you may be eligible to enter into the PAR program. The program helps offenders to understand and avoid behaviour that leads to violence and encourages healthy relationships.

Sometimes the Crown will offer to resolve your charges by way of a peace bond upon successful completion of this program.

Sometimes you will be ordered to complete this program as part of a sentence on domestic related charges.
