Toronto Police enforcing Stay At Home orders



Toronto Police enforcing Stay At Home orders

Broadcast time: 17:15
Date: Thursday, January 14, 2021
Unit: Corporate Communications
Phone: 416-808-7100
Case #: N/A

On January 12, 2021, the Government of Ontario, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, declared a second provincial emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).

The government also issued a new Stay-At-Home order to limit mobility and reduce the number of daily contacts with those outside their immediate household. The order is requiring everyone to remain in their homes with exceptions under certain categories including for groceries, medical, pharmacy, exercise or for work that cannot be done remotely.

The Toronto Police Service will enforce this new order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA) in addition to continued enforcement of the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA) in partnership with the City of Toronto.

"The message from the Toronto Police Service is to stay home and stay safe. This is no longer strictly a public health issue, it is a matter of public safety," said Deputy Chief Myron Demkiw. "We each have a personal responsibility to limit our travel to essential reasons only to slow the spread of COVID-19 and try to keep our families and communities safe and support our hospitals and healthcare workers."

No element of any order provides the police with either the power to enter dwellings nor the authority to stop a vehicle for the singular purpose of checking compliance with the Stay-At-Home order.

In addition, individuals are not compelled to explain why they are out of their residence, nor is being outside prima facie evidence of a failure to comply with the stay at home order. Workers are also not required to have proof from their employer that they are travelling to or from their workplace.

Officers will focus enforcement efforts on restaurants and businesses not in compliance with closure orders and/or customer limits; responding to complaint calls for gatherings and officers will disperse and ticket gatherings of more than five people outdoors.

"Officers can exercise discretion in every situation," continued Deputy Chief Demkiw. "But, where there is evidence of non-compliance, officers will be ticketing and issuing summonses for individuals and businesses."

The public is reminded that only when an officer has reasonable and probable grounds to suspect someone has violated one of the orders under the two Acts, they may ask the person to identify themselves in order to issue a ticket or summons. If the person refuses to identify themselves for this purpose, they can be arrested and charged with obstructing a police officer.

The Service continues to work with its partners at the City of Toronto, including Toronto Public Health, to determine how the regulations for large gatherings will apply to City-owned outdoor spaces such as skating rinks and toboggan hills.

The regulations under the Stay-At-Home order can be found here.

Broadcast time: 12:00 Date: Wednesday, December 23, 2020 Unit: Parking Enforcement Phone: 416-808-6600 Case #: N/A

The Toronto Police Service has been working closely with our City of Toronto and Emergency Management partners in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to support the various programs implemented by the City to reduce the spread of COVID-19.


In support of the provincial COVID-19 regulatory lockdown the Parking Enforcement Unit will be commencing an enforcement approach to on-street parking where a high level of discretion will be applied. This will be effective immediately.

Enforcement will focus on offences that create safety concerns, disrupt snow removal processes or cause significant disruptions in the flow of traffic on city streets.

We ask for the public’s cooperation in parking legally to ensure that the efficient flow of traffic in the City of Toronto is maintained.

These measures will remain in effect until further notice.

Should this approach be amended, updates will be provided through news releases and will be made available at www.torontopolice.on.ca/parking

The holiday season is approaching and this year businesses are expecting an increase in online shopping. The Toronto Police Service would like to remind you to stay vigilant and provide you with the following information and best practices for a more secure online shopping experience this holiday season:

- always install antivirus updates for your devices as soon as updates are available,

- change your passwords for online shopping sites and other accounts regularly, using a different password for each system and account

- where possible, use two-factor authentication for an added layer of login security

- immediately change factory pre-set passwords on home networking equipment, such as Wi-Fi routers and smart devices

- for shopping online, credit cards are your most secure option; verify online transactions by checking your credit card and banking statements routinely and activate the alerts offered by your bank to receive email or text notifications for all account transactions

- do not use public Wi-Fi networks for online shopping or banking, even when a password in required

- phishing (luring using email) and smishing (luring via text message) are fraud schemes, which criminals use to elicit funds, obtain credit card data, personal information, or install malware on computers and electronic devices

- never respond to emails or text messages from unknown sources, and avoid opening attachments or clicking on links from senders you do not recognize

- reputable and established online businesses utilize encryption to protect personal identifiers and payment information transmitted to and from your computer or device, look for the lock icon next to a website address in your browser.

- always verify website addresses by manually typing them into your web browser, or access websites from internet searches

- when shopping from your phone, choose vetted apps from trusted businesses and download apps only from an authorized app store.

Remember, if the offer sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
