How much does bail cost?

Region: Ontario Answer # 752

Bail is not a fee to be paid for a person’s release. If the accused follows the conditions of the bail order, the surety will not be asked to pay any of the bail money for which the surety signed, therefore bail will cost nothing. If you have been charged with a crime, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible.

However, should the accused breach one or more conditions of the bail, the Crown can seek to have the surety pay some or all the bail money. The surety will have the right to go to court to explain that he or she did everything they could and were required to do in supervising the accused and so should not have to pay any of the bail. A judge will consider the circumstances and decide whether the surety will have to pay.
