Introduction to the Small Claims Process

This webinar was presented on June 13, 2022, as part of our firm’s annual lectures on insurance law.


With jurisdiction on claims of $15,000 or less, the Small Claims Division of the Court of Québec hears nearly 15,000 cases each year. Whether the object is an account, bodily injury, latent defects, or an insurance indemnity, claims of that magnitude represent a substantial part of their concerns for many businesses. However, except in certain very special circumstances, parties may not be represented by a lawyer.

Do you know how to defend your business against a claim before that court?

Please contact our speaker Alice Bourgault-Roy for additional information on this topic.

A copy of her presentation, “Introduction au processus des petites créances” (in French), is available here:
