C-75 Hybrid Offences: Quick Reference Sheet

June 30, 2022

The following is a list of indictable offences in the Criminal Code of Canada, which Bill C-75 proposes to make eligible for summary conviction. Essentially, C-75 proposes to allow summary convictions as a possible prosecutorial option for crimes that were previously indictable offences. Indictable offences are some of the most serious crimes recognized in the Criminal Code of Canada. Consequently, if C-75 receives Royal Assent without amendment, crimes traditionally punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment could be reduced to a mere fine.

This is unacceptable. Conservatives are very concerned that C-75 opens the possibility to reduce penalties for some of the most serious crimes in Canada.

The purpose of this document is to be used as a tool for quick reference. The order of the offence titles below are as they are listed in C-75. If the reader requires further details on the crime being affected by C-75, please refer to the Bill Text of C-75, which can be found here: http://www.parl.ca/Content/Bills/421/Government/C-75/C-75_1/C-75_1.PDF
