Any use of force against another person, or even threatening to use force, can result in assault charges. This includes pushing, poking, hitting or any gesture that makes the other person feel they are in danger.

There are several types of assault charges in Canada including:

  • Simple Assault – This covers any unwanted physical contact so long as there were no weapons involved and no bodily harm was incurred by either party.
  • Assault with a Weapon and Assault causing Bodily Harm – Assaults that occur where one or both parties suffer minor injuries – like bruises or cuts – would fall under this type of assault charge.
  • Sexual Assault – This charge is when the physical contact was of a sexual nature and consent was not given.
  • Aggravated Assault – The most serious incidents are considered Aggravated Assaults. This applies where the alleged victim suffered great harm or had their life endangered because of the event. This charge is one most often seen in situations like bar fights.
