In BC, there are two common places where you can sue someone; either in Small Claims Court or in Supreme Court.
Small Claims Court is used when the Plaintiff’s (individual starting the action) claim is under $35,000.00. Small Claims Court is less expensive, less formal, faster and simpler procedures. The Supreme Court is for disputes over $35,000.
The Supreme Court often takes longer and has a more complicated procedure. In both court systems, it is beneficial to have a lawyer because they know the procedure and proper documents to successfully pursue a claim.
