Jonathon Barkley, 27, admitted Wednesday he installed a covert camera in the bathroom at his parents home, which secretly filmed people.
The Crown is proceeding by indictment on the rare charge, meaning Barkley faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison. In court Wednesday, he acknowledged he was the person who placed the camera in the washroom.
Barkley previously denied allegations of secretly taping people "from the neck to the knees" as they used the facilities.
He was first arrested on the voyeurism charge in June 2010 after a woman attending a party at the home spotted the camera, played it back, saw herself in the footage and called police, a Crown attorney told court at a bail hearing.
The Winnipeg police warrant squad caught up to him at the Occupy Winnipeg encampment last November after he failed to show in court.
He remains free on $5,000 bail pending sentencing.
