Quebec's first weekend with a curfew has come to a close and we're getting our first look at what compliance was like across the province.

In Montreal, police say they gave 185 tickets to curfew violators between January 9 and 10.

185

tickets for curfew violators

The SPVM also received 800 calls related to public health rules.

That's down from 903 in the previous seven-day period.

At least 84 of those tickets for non-compliance with the curfew come from its first night.

On Sunday, the SPVM additionally reported that its officers had carried out "several interventions to assist people in a situation of homelessness" but had not given out tickets in those cases.

While Premier Legault has said he expects homeless Quebecers to be inside during curfew hours (8 p.m. to 5 a.m.), Deputy Premier Geneviève Guilbault claimed that police would focus on assisting, rather than fining, homeless people.

Fines for curfew non-compliance can range from $1,000 to $6,000.
