The Small Claims Court is a branch of the Superior Court of Justice (CJA, s. 22(1)), and its jurisdiction is set out in s. 23 of the CJA. This court is meant to provide a more accessible and less formal way of litigating disputes, where the amount of money claimed or the value of personal property to be recovered does not exceed the amount prescribed by regulation, currently $35,000.00.
In a case with a defendant's claim, the court can hear a case with a $25,000.00 plaintiff's claim and a $25,000.00 claim, therefore putting $50,000.00 in dispute in the Small Claims Court.
