ALTERNATIVE MEASURES PROGRAM

ALTERNATIVE MEASURES PROGRAM

The Alternative Measures Program (AMP) is a program that is offered to persons involved in minor offences that either do not have a criminal record or, on the program’s discretion, to those who have less than two offences on their record (generally the offences on your record must be old e.g. not recent). The intention of AMP is to allow persons involved in minor offences who have little experience with the criminal justice system, a chance avoid a criminal record. If you are accepted into the program, upon completion, the Crown will withdraw the charges against you (i.e. you will not have a criminal record). Although you will not have a criminal conviction and thus have no record, the fact that you participated in the program will show on CPIC (a police database); this is essentially to ensure that a person does not get AMP more than once.
