Here are some tips and tricks when dealing with the Toronto Courts:
Toronto Civil court:
Affidavits of service must be originals with signature, no emails, copies etc. Service by fax must have transmission page attached, Service by email must have confirmation of receipt/acceptance email attached, Service by courier must have delivery confirmation attached. Same day filings are virtually impossible at this court now. We have to be in line by 730 am just to guarantee morning service. Anything after 10 am is unlikely to get served that day. Wait times are going to get even worse in the new year when they move across the street to a smaller location.
Appeals and Divisional Courts:
Same as above for affidavits. There are various colour requirements and combinations for the front and back covers of documents being filed in these courts, clients should ensure they check the website for rules on what they need for their filings. https://www.attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca/english/
Factums to be filed must be accompanied by an electronic copy on a data stick or (and this is preferred) they must email an electronic copy to the court ahead of time with the file number in the subject line.
Toronto Small Claims:
Any service on a lawyer or paralegal must be accepted in writing on a copy of the document and attached to the affidavit of service. Does not matter if they are lawyer of record anymore.
Please note that at times we can get a different clerk that may or may not follow the above and or refuse/take files that others might have so it can be a toss up at times as to what gets accepted and what does not.
