Drug offences in Guelph and across Canada are defined by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (“CDSA”). There are four primary categories of drug offences:


  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Traffic
  • Trafficking in a Controlled Substance
  • Importing a Controlled Substance


Being accused of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance means you’re alleged to have it for personal use. If you’re charged with possessing a drug for trafficking, it means you’re accused of having it to sell, share, transport, or give to others. This often involves police finding a larger amount of drugs. If you’re charged with drug trafficking, it means you’re alleged to have sold or given the substance to someone else, possibly even undercover police. Importing a drug happens when you bring an illegal substance into Canada, including cases where the drugs aren’t physically with you but have been sent or delivered to you.


Parliament divides controlled substances into different schedules. For example, cocaine, fentanyl, morphine, and opium are classified under Schedule 1. Trafficking these substances carries harsh penalties; for instance, trafficking or possessing fentanyl or cocaine for trafficking purposes can result in long prison sentences, potentially life imprisonment. Schedule III includes substances such as LSD, psilocybin (magic mushrooms), and other hallucinogens. Convictions for trafficking or possessing Schedule III substances can lead to serious consequences, though usually not as severe as those for Schedule I substances.


Drug charges often stem from police obtaining search warrants for homes, apartments, condos, storage units, offices, and vehicles. They can also arise from searches conducted when an individual is arrested for an unrelated offence. Drug investigations may involve police tactics like wiretapping, tracking cell phones and vehicles, and obtaining production orders for specific documents and records. Police must meet strict legal requirements to obtain warrants and production orders.
