Electronic filing, available in English and French, allows a party or the party's legal representative to file documents electronically with the Federal Court via a secure, Internet-based system, in all areas of the Court's jurisdiction.

The filing process is simplified by step by step directions that guide the user through each part of the application. Help options and information are available throughout the entire submission process.

Users can cancel their incomplete submission at any point in the application if they decide they do not wish to submit their documents electronically. Users can return to previous steps during the application if changes need to be made before submitting a filing.

Inquiries about the status of submitted filings are facilitated through the use of a unique filing identification number assigned to each completed submission, and further provided to the filing party as a confirmation number for their records.

The Federal Court’s Covid-19 Practice Direction provides guidelines regarding format of electronic documents and exemptions from filing paper copies. For more information, consult the most recent Covid-19 Practice Direction at Notices.

We also invite you to consult our e-filing resources page and watch this video which outlines 15 tips from the registry.
