Question:

Answer: 

This answer is taken from Small Claims Court, produced by Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General.

It depends on the amount of money you're suing for. You can use the Small Claims Court to sue for a maximum of $25,000, not including interest and costs such as court fees.

If the amount you are owed is more than $25,000, you can still choose to use Small Claims Court, but you will not be able to claim any more than $25,000, and you cannot try to sue for the excess amount in any other court, at the same time or in the future.
