Ottawa Process Serving

Our experienced, resourceful and highly dedicated team of process servers at MCA Process Service will gladly attend to the serving of your documents and will do so both efficiently and cost-effectively.

Whether the service of your document(s) is considered routine or “rush”, whether it is a straightforward serve or there is a need to adhere to very specific service instructions, you can be confident that your documents will be handled in a professional manner. Our courteous servers are uniformly well-trained in the Rules of Civil Procedure and take pride in respecting legal guidelines while satisfying your particular needs.

We regularly serve documents within the City of Ottawa and its suburbs. However, with the assistance of a trusted, reliable and ever-growing roster of agents, our office has the capability to attend to services provincially, nationally and internationally.

We also have expertise in locating and effecting service upon even the most difficult-to-find parties.

Finally, we can confirm the completion of process serving tasks in a format of your choosing. Our office is equipped to contact you promptly by telephone, , e-mail and, lettermail. Original affidavits of service and invoices for services rendered will follow shortly thereafter by regular lettermail, courier or personal delivery to your office.

If you are looking for a process serving company that routinely goes “beyond the expected” then you have found the right partner with MCA Process Service.
