Response form to an action at the Small Claims Division (SJ-871E)

This is the Online Response Form you must use if you are sued at the Small Claims Division.

You will be asked to provide an e-mail address. This is where you will receive the personal password needed to access the form.

The procedure is necessary for security reasons, given the confidential nature of the information you will provide.

You can save the form at any point and complete it later. However, before saving the form you must have included the basic information: the type of application, the name of the plaintiff and the name of at least one defendant. You can make changes at any time, even after the application has been filed at the court office, but in the latter case you will have to file a new application at the court office to replace your original application.
