Full text
8.1. Except in the case of a statement of offence for the contravention of a municipal by-law, a contribution of the following amounts shall be added to the total amount of the fine and costs imposed on the issue of a statement of offence for an offence under the laws of Québec:
(1)  $20, if the total amount of the fine does not exceed $100;
(2)  $40, if the total amount of the fine exceeds $100 without exceeding $500; and
(3)  25% of the total amount of the fine, if it exceeds $500.
The contribution becomes payable as a fine as soon as a defendant enters a plea of guilty or is convicted or deemed convicted of an offence, whether or not the contribution is mentioned in the judgment. Except as regards imprisonment, the rules provided in this Code for the recovery of a fine, including those relating to costs of execution, apply to the recovery of the contribution and the contribution is deemed, for such purposes, to form part of the fine. However, in the case of partial payment of a fine, the contribution is deemed paid last.
From each contribution collected, the first $10 shall be credited to the Crime Victims Assistance Fund established under the Act respecting assistance for victims of crime (chapter A-13.2), and the following $8 shall be credited to the Access to Justice Fund established under the Act respecting the Ministère de la Justice (chapter M-19).
The amount of the contribution provided for in subparagraph 3 of the first paragraph is rounded down to the nearest dollar if it includes a dollar fraction that is less than $0.50, or up to the nearest dollar if it includes a dollar fraction that is equal to or greater than $0.50.
