Assault

A s s a u l t

Types of Assault

There are three main categories of assault in the canadian Criminal Code: Simple Assault, Assault Causing Bodily Harm and Aggravated Assault. The type of assault an individual is charged with depends on the extent of the injuries the complainant sustains. While domestic assaults also fall into these categories, they are often treated differently in a number of respects. For more on domestic assault specifically, please see the full length article on this offence.
