Small Claims Forms
Changes are coming to Small Claims processes in B.C.
Starting June 1, 2017, most small claims up to $5,000 will be resolved through the Civil Resolution Tribunal. At the same time, the monetary jurisdiction for small claims cases in Provincial Court will increase to $35,000 and simplified trials at Richmond and Robson Square will include cases up to $10,000. Visit the Provincial Court of B.C. website and the Civil Resolution Tribunal website to learn more about these changes. Find information about the Civil Resolution Tribunal Act.
You may wish to use the Small Claims Filing Assistant when completing your forms. The Filing Assistant takes information you enter online and generates completed forms already filled out with your answers. Forms may then be printed and submitted in person or mailed to a small claims registry.
You also have the option to file documents electronically through Court Services Online (CSO). To do so, you must have a registered account with CSO and either a BCeID account with a registered credit card or a BC Online account. It does take time to obtain a BCeID or BC Online account. If you are in a hurry to file documents, we suggest that you file in person at the court registry or by mail. You can find further information about eFiling and BCeID and BC Online accounts on the CSO website. Forms are not accepted for filing via email.
