Form 7A – Plaintiff’s Claim: If you wish to start a lawsuit this is the form you use.  The person who commences a lawsuit, also called a claim or an action, is referred to as the Plaintiff. The court fee to file a Plaintiff’s Claim is $75.  Once a Plaintiff’s Claim is served upon a Defendant the Defendant then has the option of filing a Defence (see next Ontario Small Claims Court forms).

Form 9A – Defence: If you are being sued and you wish to dispute the Plaintiff’s Claim then you need to file a Defence (normally within 20 days of being served with a Plaintiff’s Claim).  This form can be used in response to either a Plaintiff’s Claim or a Defendant’s Claim.  The court filing fee for a Defence is $40. After all of the Defendant’s have filed a Defence (or been noted in default) then the matter proceeds to a Settlement Conference.
