The Criminal Code defines the word “weapon” very broadly. Anything that is used, designed to be used or intended for use in causing death or injury to any person, or for the purpose of threatening or intimidating any person can be considered a weapon. Even a replica firearm, or a toy-gun painted to look realistic, can be considered a weapon if it is used to threaten or intimidate another person.


Canadian law prohibits the carrying of weapons or concealed weapons in public places. Such laws include many types of circumstances, including situations where a person may not have been in direct possession of a weapon, but was acting in concert with others for an unlawful purpose. If you've been charged with a weapons related offense, feel free to contact our office to learn more about your options.
