What Is a Fail to Appear or Attend Court charge?

Failing to Appear or Attend court on a specified date set out by a Police Officer, a Summons, a Jusice of the Peace or a Judge may create a charge for such failure to attend without a lawful excuse. It is governed by section 145 of the Criminal Code of Canada. When you are first charged with an Offence, you are usually provided with an Appearance Notice, or you may be served on a Summons. The burden is on the accused to provide a lawful excuse.
