What is Small Claims Court?
Small Claims Court is a civil trial court. In Ontario, Small claims court is a division of the Superior Court of Justice with no criminal or quasi criminal jurisdiction. Small claims court hears civil actions only where one party (Plaintiff) sues another (Defendant) for private relief to a limit of $25,000(money, return of property etc.).
Small Claims is the alternative to taking an action in the Superior Court of Justice, which is governed by complex procedural rules and requirements which drive the cost of legal representation up significantly. It is possible for Plaintiff suing for $100,000 to have to pay a lawyer $75,000 to recover that amount. Small Claims on the other hand, is intended to improve the public’s access to justice by being able to hire a paralegal for the matter at cheaper rates, and where the amount being claimed is comparatively modest (up to $25,000 only)
