For landlords, we assist with navigation of the complex process of tenant evictions. For tenants, we can help protect your rights and help resolve some of the more common issues such as unlawful rent increases and poorly maintained units. We are also experts in helping non-profit cooperative housing clients with member evictions.
Small Claims Court
Northwest Paralegals can assist in Small Claims Court proceeding up to $25,000. Small Claims Court is an effective method of recovering money that you are owed. We can help you start your claim or help you defend a claim that you have been served with.
Ministry of Natural Resources
Recreational hunting and fishing in Northern Ontario are highly regulated by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. If you have been charged with a fine under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, you can face penalties of fines up to $25,000 or more and lose your privilege to hunt or fish for years. Northwest Paralegals can help you to navigate the process, assist you in negotiations and work with the Prosecution to reach a resolution or represent you at trial.
A Commissioner of Oaths can administer or commission statements, statutory declarations and oaths for documents that require taking the declarant’s affidavit, verify the true likeness of photos for official documents, and certify true copies of official documents.
Municipal governments are responsible for areas such as animal and wildlife, licensing, parking and traffic, property maintenance, parks, and roadways. The By-Law enforcement office can lay charges in any of these areas, which are sometimes handled in the Provincial Offences Court. Northwest Paralegals can help you to understand your charge and represent your interest in the proceedings.
If our office is unable to adequately assist you, we are happy to refer you to a trusted Paralegal or Lawyer that can.
