John Howard Society of Toronto

Direct Accountability Program (DAP)

This program provides adults charged with mostly minor first time criminal offence(s) with an alternative to the formal court process. Individuals charged are still held accountable for their actions by completing community based sanctions. Upon successfully satisfying the program, through the options of charitable donations, volunteer community work, participating in workshops or programs, the charge(s) against the individual are withdrawn by the court. We offer this service at the Metro North Courthouse and the Metro West Provincial Court.

You can access this service by requesting information at both of these courts or by contacting:
