If its from a collections agency then it does not involve City of Ottawa or anybody else anymore. You could call MTO in Ontario and see if they have any fines on file and then you could call city of Ottawa and see if they have any fines on file. Personally I would only pay directly to MTO or directly to Ottawa and would not pay a cent to collections agency. If MTO and Ottawa say you owe nothing then I would still not pay collections agency.CarolN780129 wrote: ↑Mar 16th, 2017 12:05 amI just got a letter in the mail from a collections agency stating I owe $2800 in parking tickets from 2001-2003 back when I was studying and living in Ottawa. (Note - the letter outlines $1300 in fines so not sure where the other $1500 comes in?)
Fast forward 15+ years later I now live in Vancouver. I never received a notice to appear in Ontario court - just this collection agency bill.
Is there any hope of getting this bill reduced with the City of Ottawa? Province of Ontario? Should I negotiate with the collection agency?
