A video conference may replace a regular hearing

During week #4 of the standard procedures it is possible that a hearing may take place. When you submit your case you need to let us know if you wish to attend a hearing. Costs of such is not included in the Court fee and need to be paid in addition to other e-Court expenses. Upon agreement by all involved parties a video conference can easily be set up with Skype between all relevant offices wherever they are located.

When conflicts deal with amounts higher than C$60,000, your attendance during an hearing is obligatory as in cases when you appeal a previous e-Court verdict.
