Finding bail conditions

I am trying to find the conditions of someone’s bail and it is listed as a publication ban 517(1). Is it possible to view the records in a courthouse or are they banned for everyone to see?

I would assume publication bans bar everybody from the info, unless you're directly involved in the case

Have you exhausted all options here? Access Court Records

Publication bans are usually relating to someone's identity (witnesses, victims, young offenders, etc), or the circumstances of the case where the situation dictates.

Accused information, release conditions, etc, is usually available from court registries. Anything subject to the publication ban will be vetted prior to release.

I just read the section.
The Justice can "make an order directing that the evidence taken, the information given or the representations made and the reasons, if any, given or to be given by the justice shall not be published in any document, or broadcast or transmitted in any way....."

So no, you won't be able to read it at the courthouse if the publication ban covers what you're looking for. You can always make an application for it to be made available though, if it is covered and you believe it should be available to the public.
