A no contact order typically applies to a person on probation or some kind of bail  The order applies only to that person, so only that person risks being charged for a breach of the order.
It sounds like you are not risking being charged, but the other person is.
Dropping the existing charges is another matter and is up to Crown Counsel.  If you have concerns about the charges or would like to see them dropped you should contact the prosecutor assigned to the case and/or your friend's defense lawyer.
