The Ontario Government believed that it was time to finally raise the costs on transcripts given there importance. They also decided to open the industry and allow those not employed by the Ministry f the Attorney General to produce them.

Transcripts are important records of the events and evidence that happens during a court proceeding. Their accuracy is extremely important.

The New Fees will include:

  • an increase to $4.30 per page fee for a first certified copy;
  • Introduction of an electronic copy fee of $20.00;
  • A minimum fee of $20.00 per transcript;
  • expedite service fees: $6.00 per page for Expedite (within 5 business days) for a first certified copy, and $8.00 per page for Daily (within 24 hours) for a first certified copy.
