C-25.1 - Code of Penal Procedure

Full text
94.5. Before entering a dwelling house, the person executing the warrant shall give a notice of his presence and of the purpose thereof to a person in the place and state his name and quality.
The judge may authorize the person making the arrest to enter a dwelling house without notice if the judge is satisfied that there are reasonable grounds to believe that such notice would expose him or another person to imminent bodily harm or death.
Despite such authorization, the person executing the warrant may not enter the dwelling house without notice unless he has reasonable grounds at the time to suspect that such notice would expose him or another person to imminent bodily harm or death.
