Small Claims Court

The Ontario Small Claims Court Limit is $ 25,000.00.   You may use Small Claims for matters over that amount, but waive all amounts over $ 25,000.00.

We provide Small Claims Court services to clients on a flat fee basis that is in line with what the Judges award back to you if you succeed at trial.

The current Small Claims flat fee rates are:

Flat Fees, exclusive of G.S.T. and disbursements

Claims for amounts between $10 000.01 and $25,000.00

A maximum of 15% of the principal amount of the claim, as follows:

7.5% billed upon drafting an initial pleading and,
7.5% billed the day following the final settlement conference, if the matter does not settle prior to that date.

– i.e. if the matter resolves at the settlement conference or before, the legal fee charged is only 7.5%.

In the case of undefended actions, the second 7.5% is billed upon drafting the assessment or default judgment materials.
