Pilot Project: Small Claims File Preparation Assistance Service

  • In Small Claims Court, the cases are increasingly complex and the financial implications may sometimes be substantial. The Small Claims File Preparation Assistance Service is a pilot project that enables residents of Montréal, Québec City, Montmagny and the Beauce to obtain a referral to a lawyer who can help them in their case for a reasonable fixed fee agreed upon in advance. The fixed fees range from $150 to $250, depending on what the lawyer is asked to do.

    Phone the number below or consult the JurisRéférence site to get the name of a lawyer offering such fixed-fee services.

Centres de justice de proximité du Québec

  • The centres de justice de proximité are, somehow, a single counter for citizens to convey legal information and referral services to appropriate resources on justice. This counter is open to all people regardless of income or the nature of their legal problem. Currently, six centers are open in the regions of Bas-Saint-Laurent, Greater Montreal, Quebec City, Outaouais, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean and Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine.
