The City of Toronto’s Court Services will need to move out of its leased facilities at the northeast corner of University Avenue and Dundas Street West early in 2020 due to redevelopment of the site by the owner.
This location houses the following operations:
The moves will not require any special effort by people to figure out where they need to go for payment of fines or for court appearances. Please attend the service location as identified on your City-issued notice.
Revised March 9, 2020
Effective March 16, 2020, in-person counter services that were previously offered at 137 Edward St. will be opening at 60 Queen St. W. (lower level), the City-owned “Old City Hall” provincial courts building. People who want to pay a ticket or fine in person, dispute a ticket or ask about a court case, will be able to visit the Old City Hall site, which is just a few blocks south and east of the current University/Dundas location downtown. It is well served by public transit, including the nearby Queen subway station. The building offers a wheelchair-accessible entrance/exit at Albert Street on the north side of the building, in addition to the main entrance facing Queen St.
In-person counter services will still be available at 137 Edward St. for individuals who have the 137 Edward St. address identified on their offence notice or ticket. In person services at the Edward Street location will be available until April 17, 2020.
For now, if you have received a Court notice or a provincial offences notice (ticket), read it closely. It will tell you exactly where you must attend.

Another move in the works involves Court Services’ administrative offices, which are generally used by the stakeholders. Those offices will move to a temporary downtown location in early 2020.
All these moves will be temporary. Eventually, Court Services’ downtown operations will all move to a new facility now under construction on the north side of Front Street as part of the North St. Lawrence Market redevelopment – expected to be completed in 2022.
