Like other courts, the Small Claims Court collects fees for every step of the procedure taken by either party. The plaintiff’s (claimant’s) process begins with the registration of a small claim, which costs $75.00. If the claim is not settled at the settlement conference and a trial is required, the fee to request a trial is $100.00. Motion hearings that may be necessary also cost $100.00. The defendant is required to pay $40.00 to register a defence against a small claim. There are other fees for the relatively less common services, such as enforcement procedures.
