In small claims court, you can sue for money or the return of personal property valued at $25,000 or less, not including interest and costs.
To sue a person or business in small claims court, your lawsuit, called a claim, must fall into one of the two following categories:
Claims for money owed under an agreement:
unpaid accounts for goods or services sold and delivered
NSF (non-sufficient funds) cheques
Claims for damages:
clothes damaged by a dry cleaner
breach of contract
If your want to sue for more than $25,000, you will have to take your case to the Superior Court of Justice (“civil court”).
