As of June 1, 2017 there will be some changes made to the Small Claims process in B.C.
For starters, the Small Claims cap will be raised from $25,000 to $35,000.
There will be simplified trials for cases up to $10,000.
And most claims under $5,000 will be handled by the Civil Resolution Tribunal. There’s even an app that will allow you to file a claim from your smartphone.
