Summary Offence– These offences are more minor than indictable offences. Summary charges must be laid within 6 months of the offence. These proceedings are all in provincial court with a judge alone (no jury). The maximum sentence for a summary conviction offence is usually 6 months in jail. But some hybrid offences prosecuted summarily have a maximum sentence of 18 months in jail.
Indictable Offence – These are more serious offences than summary conviction offences. Indictable offences can have long jail sentences and have different types of trial.
Some examples of indictable offences are theft of something worth more than $5000, breaking and entering, manslaughter, and murder.
