What is a Peace Bond?

A peace bond is an order granted by the court for cases where the accused does not typically have a criminal record. It is an order granted as per section 810 of the Criminal Code of Canada. A peace bond does not leave you with a criminal record. Generally, when a peace bond is granted, it comes with several conditions that the accused must follow.
