Provincial fines have a way of digging deep into the pocket, but you can keep your money by signing up for volunteer work through the province’s Fine Option Program.
There’s a way to keep your money and work off the provincial fine, Community Service Coordinator, Susan Adderley, gives the details.
“The fine option program gives people the opportunity to settle provincial fines by doing unpaid supervised community service rather than paying in cash.”
Adderley shared there are four different placement options available, they are the Salvation Army, Weyburn Humane Society, Weyburn Therapeutic Animal Park, and Help International.
“It's a great way to help out and support your community, make some new friends, even some new fur friends.”
The Fine Option Program runs out of the Canadian Mental Health Association Building at 404 Ashford Street; however, Susan is also available to meet at the Weyburn Public Library. To set up a meeting call (306)861-2002 or call the Fine Option Hotline at (306)787-3333.
The fine option program is not an alternative to sentencing.
