Domestic assault is another form of assault in Canada. Unlike common assault, domestic assault must be between family members or romantic partners to be classified as such.

Impaired driving means driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (or both) in Canada. If you’re charged with impaired driving, you will find that the type of charge and the consequences can vary greatly. Impaired driving may be a summary, hybrid, or indictable offence in Canada, which means that the consequences can range from a fine to jail time.
The charge will vary depending on your blood alcohol or drug levels, the nature of the offence, and the number of prior offences.

A conviction of sexual assault can result in up to 14 years in prison for the most serious forms of sexual assault.
