After an individual is arrested by the Police they may not be immediately released and may have to argue to be released pending a trial on the merits. This process is known as the judicial interim release and your first instance hearing is generally conducted in front of a Justice of the Peace (JP) or in front of Provincial Court Judge.
If you have already been denied bail at your first instance bail hearing then generally your only recourse is an application for bail review in the Court of Queen's Bench.
