Court of King's Bench

  • Court of King's Bench Civil Search Portal -  For paper records, you must request the Court to do a search for you. 
    • Search by party name will produce a list of all the actions for or against the named person or company. This is sometimes referred to as a "litigation search".
    • The search fee is $10 to search for actions commenced by a party and $10 to search for actions against a party. Parties can be persons or companies.
    • If you know the action or court file number, or are searching for a specific action or court file (example Jane Doe vs. John Doe), choose the "Search by Action or Court File Number" option. The fee is $10.00 and will include a list of all documents filed.
