If you're going to court in Ontario, you may have to pay fees to start a proceeding, file documents, schedule a hearing or enforce a judgment or order.

If you can't afford to pay the fees in your case, you can ask the court to waive your fees so that you don't have to pay. If you request a fee waiver, the court will look at your financial situation and decide whether you're eligible. If your request is accepted, you will be given a certificate which you must show to court staff when you go to pay a fee.

You can use your fee waiver certificate only in the case or proceeding for which it was given to you, plus any enforcement related to that case. If you have multiple cases at once, or if your case is appealed, you will need to request a new fee waiver for each case.

These topics are included:

  1. Eligibility
  2. When to request a fee waiver
  3. Which fees cannot be waived
  4. How to request a fee waiver
  5. Requesting a court interpreter
