Process servers in Ottawa generally charge around $70 for 1-3 (varying) attempts at serving within the city.

Though the price does vary depending on the exact location (some can be as cheap as $70 downtown, for example), destinations in the outer city limits can pull the starting price up to $125 or more.

Fee above excludes mileage fees, HST, insurance, MISC, etc.

What is an Affidavit of Service?

The affidavit of service is the proof of service, showing that the process server served (handed over the documents to the recipient party), and that they provided identification and proof of receipt (by way of verbal admission). Also, included in the affidavit of service is the time and location, as well as other pertinent information that varies based on the documents served.

Once your process server prepares the affidavit, you have a few options. Though not all, many process servers offer an additional fee for them to file the affidavit of service with the court, so that you don’t have to take any extra action. Alternatively, you are the one who is required to file the affidavit of service with the court clerk, so that the process reception can be confirmed.

Through Court Runner – you can have the best of both worlds. You can ask for the process server to directly file the affidavit in court as soon as they get it served at an extra cost that will be displayed through the option. You can also ask to receive the documents and file it yourself – whichever is the easiest option for you.
