Not following Ontario's stay-at-home orders could cost you big time. 

Brent Ross, a spokesperson for the Ministry of the Solicitor General, told Narcity that residents can get a variety of tickets for not following the rules.

$750 The set fine for failing to follow an order.

In an email, Ross stated that failure to comply with an order can actually result in a $750 fine. 

One example of this includes attending a gathering that is over the current legal limits, such as more than five people outdoors. 

A steeper $1,000 fine can be issued to corporations who fail to comply with restrictions. 

Ross also states that if individuals who break the rules are served with a summons, they can also face a $100,000 fine and up to a year in jail.

Ontarians are reminded that if they are also the ones caught hosting a party during these stay-at-home orders, you can also get fined a minimum of $10,000. 

However, it is important to note that police do not have the power to randomly stop vehicles or people on the streets just to enforce COVID-19 measures.
