Paralegal Representation

Practice Note: On January 1, 2020, the Small Claims Court limit in Ontario increased from $25,000 to $35,000. Now, you can sue for money or the return of personal property valued at $35,000 or less, excluding interest and costs.

To sue a person or business in small claims court, your lawsuit, called a claim, must fall into one of the two following categories:
1. Claims for money owed under an agreement, such as,
  • unpaid accounts for goods or services sold and delivered
  • unpaid loans
  • unpaid rent
  • NSF (non-sufficient funds) cheques
2. Claims for damages, such as,
  • property damage
  • clothes damaged by a dry cleaner
  • personal injuries
  • breach of contract

For claims exceeding $35,000, the case has to be taken to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (“civil court”).
