Consolidated Notice to the Profession and Public Regarding the Small Claims Court
The Consolidated Notice to the Profession and Public Regarding the Small Claims Court has been amended. The Court will now accept requests for:
- Motions in writing that are without notice to any other party, whether the motion is new or previously filed; and
- Settlement conferences, if all defendants had filed a defence or been noted in default prior to August 31, 2020. (A settlement conference does not need to have been previously scheduled.)
Request forms have also been updated and can be found in the same places as the old forms (linked in the relevant section of the notice). For example, the part about motions to set aside defaults reads:
The Court is accepting requests to hear motions to set aside a noting in default or default judgment. To make that request, please submit the request form to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email must comply with the requirements in the Email Filing section below. The updated form can be accessed by clicking on “request form”.
