What is a Certificate of Perfection at Divisional Court in Ontario?
Although the Divisional Court hears appeals from many types of courts and tribunals, if you are specifically interested in appealing a decision of the Small Claims Court, then we recommend reading How to appeal a Small Claims Court case in Ontario before reading this article.
The Certificate of Perfection must do the following:
state that the Appeal Book and Compendium, Exhibit Book, transcripts, if any, and Appellant's Factum have been filed, and
set out, with respect to every party to the appeal, any intervener and any person entitled by statute to be heard on the appeal,
the name, address and telephone number of the party's or person's lawyer, or
if the party or person acts in person, the party or person's name, address for service and telephone number.
