A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

Ontario now allows legal professionals to search for Superior Court of Justice court cases online. To search, you will need to set up a ONe-key account. (There is no cost to set up an account.)

You can search by either party name (i.e. surname or business name) or by case number.

Information provided includes the parties, the name of the lawyer representing the person or company (if represented), the claim amount (for civil matters), the date the case was opened, the most recent order type and date (for civil matters), the next appearance type and date (if a future appearance has been scheduled), and whether the case is subject to a publication ban

Note that the service “will not provide information about cases that are subject to statutory, common law or court-ordered public access restrictions.”
