6.1.1 Court of Appeal for Ontario and Divisional Court Transcripts (Solicitor-Initiated Appeals)

In accordance with the transcript fees outlined in O. Reg. 94/14, ordering parties are charged $4.30 per page for the first certified copy of the transcript and $0.55 per page if previously transcribed.

ACTs may use the Queen’s Printer, at no cost, to print the additional copies on the condition that ACTs charge the ordering party for the first copy (at $4.30 or $0.55 per page, if previously transcribed) and do not charge for the additional required copies.

Deposits and/or payment of the regulated fees are arranged between the ACT and the ordering party.

Note: In R. v. C.G., 2018 ONCA 751, the Court of Appeal made the following order:

When an ACT receives an order during the trial to prepare a transcript of trial proceedings, but intends to charge $0.55 per page per copy for appeal transcripts, the ACT should give specific notice to and secure the agreement of the ordering party to this effect before accepting the order. Failing such notice and agreement, the appeal copies will be prepared and bound by the Queen's Printer at no charge to the ACT or the ordering party. If the ACT refuses to prepare an appeal transcript otherwise than for $0.55 per page per copy, the ordering party is free to choose another ACT to prepare the transcript and any further copies necessary for appeal.

Note that fee waivers do not apply to court transcript fees.
