The Small Claims Court is a branch of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that handles any action for the payment of money or the recovery of personal property when the amount claimed does not exceed $35,000. Some of the issues we handle in the Small Claims Court involve:
(1) Breach of Contract Disputes;
(2) Collection of Unpaid Accounts;
(3) Condominium Disputes;
(4) Wrongful Dismissal Claims;
(5) Insurance Subrogation Claims;
(6) Repair & Storage Lien Claims;
(7) Slip and Fall Claims;
(9) Misrepresentation - Negligent or Fraudulent;
(10) Renovation Disputes; and many more....
If the amount of your claim is more than $35,000, you can still choose to use Small Claims Court. However, you will have to give up any excess amount over the value of $35,000. If you choose to pursue your case in a higher court, you must seek assistance from a lawyer instead.
