The Fine Option Program offers individuals a unique opportunity to address their fines through community service instead of monetary payments. Administered by the Ministry of Justice in collaboration with local entities like town councils, First Nations communities, and non-profit organizations, the program operates through fine option agencies. These agencies assign suitable community service tasks to participants, who then complete their obligations under supervised conditions. The John Howard Society of Saskatchewan oversees the program in Regina, Saskatoon, and Moose Jaw, exclusively for those cities. Notably, the Fine Option Program can be used to work off out-of-province fines within specific agreements, but it is only available to individuals and not applicable to businesses. Participants need a court order to register and can maintain eligibility for the program even if they receive Employment Insurance benefits, provided it doesn’t hinder their job-seeking efforts. The program values the quality, punctuality, and communication of participants in line with the standards of paid employment. To initiate the process, individuals must present specific forms to their local Fine Option agent after receiving a court order.
