Welcome to the Civil Resolution Tribunal

Scheduled Maintenance – Tuesday, December 18 from 9-11am PST

We’ll be upgrading our systems to serve you better and provide an easier application experience.

For those 2 hours, you won’t be able to submit an application for dispute resolution. You also won’t be able to log in to manage or respond to a dispute. But you can still use the website and Solution Explorer.

Thanks for your understanding. We’ll remove this alert once maintenance is finished and all access has been restored. If you have any questions about this maintenance, please email us at info@crtbc.ca


The Civil Resolution Tribunal, or CRT, is Canada’s first online tribunal. The CRT resolves small claims disputes $5,000 and under, and strata property (condominium) of any amount. On April 1, 2019, the CRT will also resolve motor vehicle accident claims $50,000 and under. The CRT helps people to resolve their disputes quickly and affordably, and encourages a collaborative approach to dispute resolution. To use the CRT and learn about the different stages of CRT dispute resolution, visit How the CRT Works. To learn about CRT Rules, Fees, Legislation, and other important information, visit the Resources page.

Try the Solution Explorer

Before you file your dispute, you must use the Solution Explorer to help you with your problem. If you haven’t already tried the Solution Explorer, it’s a great tool to help you get started and learn more about your dispute.

It can also help you take steps to resolve the dispute on your own or to be sure you haven’t missed any resolution options. At the end of your Solution Explorer exploration, you can access the CRT application for dispute resolution.
