Going to Court


Is there a cost to filing a claim under Rule 80 for certain claims not exceeding $30,000?

To file your claim, take or send the completed original Claim form to the Clerk of the Court of Queen’s Bench in the Judicial District where the defendant(s) lives or where the incident happened. You must include copies for each plaintiff and each defendant.  If the Claim is for $3,000 or less, you must include a filing fee of $50. If the Claim is for $3,001 to $30,000, the filing fee is $100. You can pay the fee by certified cheque or money order (payable to the Minister of Finance). You can pay in cash if you file your Claim in person.
