Registering for a CSO account provides you with a number of benefits
as well as access to more of our Services!
Currently, with Electronic Search, you are not required to register
for a CSO subscription account. Registration provides the added
convenience of registering a credit card or a BC Online account to pay for the use of the
service and allows you to access monthly statements of service usage.
In the future, with the introduction of Electronic Filing, you will
be required to register for a subscription account in order to manage
access to electronic filing.
Registering With Court Services Online
If you have accessed other Government of British Columbia electronic services before, you may
already have one of these account types:
- BC OnLine
- Business BCeID -- for businesses
- Basic BCeID -- for individuals
- IDIR -- for internal BC Government employees
These accounts make it possible for you to use a single User ID and password to sign in securely
to any participating Government of British Columbia website. Court Services Online (CSO) is a participating
site, so you will need to have one of these accounts in order to register with CSO.
Once you register with CSO, your CSO Client ID becomes tied to your BC OnLine account, Business BCeID or Basic
BCeID. Therefore, to login to CSO you only need to use your BC OnLine or BCeID account name and password.
