Motor Vehicle Collisions and Property Damage or Loss Reports

Please be advised, commencing January 1st, 2021, the Niagara Regional Police Service will no longer be accepting or processing requests for Motor Vehicle Collision Reports (SR-LD-401), as these reports are now available at a nominal cost from Ontario's Ministry of Transportation, who hold the greater interest in these reports.

Individuals requiring a copy of a Motor Vehicle Collision Report can access Service Ontario's webpage for specific directions on how to order reports online, in person at any Service Ontario Centre, or by mail directed to the Ministry of Transportation.  A certified copy costs $18.00 CAN or an uncertified copy costs $12.00 CAN.  A copy of the information required to be shared under s. 200(1)(c) of the Highway Traffic Act, (commonly referred to as a "driver's copy"), can still be obtained free of charge by an involved party at any of the NRPS District Front Desks, or the Records Counter.

For all other requests concerning property damage or loss reports, or witness statements and officer notes from motor vehicle collisions, please direct your request to the Niagara Regional Police Service Insurance Desk.

For requests concerning full reconstruction reports, please contact our Reconstruction Unit at 905-688-4111 extension 102-5500.

For collisions reported to any of the Collision Reporting Centres within Niagara Region, individuals can contact Accident Support Services International in order to obtain a copy of their report.

Should you have any further questions with respect to this matter, please do not hesitate to contact our Insurance Clerk at (905) 688-4111, extension 102-4565.
