Fees For Using This Service


For a $6 fee, you can view the file details for any one of the Provincial and Supreme Court Civil files in your search results index. There is no charge to view Provincial Criminal and Traffic files. You can refine your search to narrow down the results before choosing a file to view.

CSO e-search users have the ability to access electronic documents (if available), and to purchase copies of documents that are currently viewable through CSO e-search. Users will first need to e-search the file to determine if the document they want is on file and available to them. If a document is electronic, the View link will appear in the Document Request column. For a $6 fee per file, you can view and print any of the electronic documents (if available) for the file by clicking on the View link next to the document. If the document is not in the electronic format, you can still obtain a copy of the document using the Request link to access the Purchase Documents Online (PDO) service.

There is an additional charge of $6 to generate a Civil or Appeal Summary Report. Generating this report is optional. It is a formatted PDF version of all of the file detail information available through e-search. (Adobe Acrobat Reader version 7.0 or higher is required in order to generate a File Summary Report. You can download this software for free at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html)

You must pay with a credit card (VISA, Visa Debit, MasterCard, MasterCard Debit or AMEX), Interac Online or your premium BC Registries and Online Service account.

Each fee is quoted in Canadian dollars. Fees must be paid in full before receiving the service. Payment for service is provided through a secure and encrypted Internet site, which is provided and managed by Provincial Treasury. If you experience any technical difficulties, a request for a refund can be completed on the Court Services Online website. For further details, please refer to the Guide for Refund Requests.
