Civil Claims Online Filing Service Pilot
April 26, 2017
Ottawa has been selected to participate in a pilot project from the Ministry of the Attorney General that will allow for online filing for civil claims.
With this service, you can submit these completed forms online:
Statement of Claim
Notice of Action
Affidavit of Litigation Guardian of a Plaintiff under a Disability
Request for Bilingual Proceedings
Consent to File Documents in French
You can also pay court fees online securely by credit card and receive a court-issued Statement of Claim or Notice of Action by email.
All other forms will continue to be filed in person at a courthouse. As this service expands, you will be able to file more documents online in all jurisdictions.
If you file your claim on a weekday – between 8:30am and 5pm – you will receive an email from the court right away – unless an unexpected system outage occurs.
This email will include your Statement of Claim or Notice of Action with an attached court seal, the assigned court file number and the date it was issued. The court seal means you can move forward with your claim.
If you file your claim outside regular business hours, you will receive an email with your issued claim dated the next business day.
