Understanding Bail in Canada$34.95 – $55.92
This is an ancient term of art that is sometimes used interchangeably with the term “forfeiture.” The two words do not mean the same thing. Estreatment means to make a copy of the recognizance and send it to the court that has jurisdiction to determine whether the accused/surety(ies) should lose money because of a bail breach.
