Rules of the Supreme Court of Canada
84 (1) Within 15 days after the certificate of taxation is received, any party may object to the taxation of costs on the ground that the bill of costs contains a clerical or calculation error by serving on all other parties and filing with the Registrar an objection in letter form specifying the errors alleged and the corrections sought to be made.
(2) Any party who objects to the taxation of costs on any other ground not specified in subrule (1) may, within 15 days after the certificate of taxation is received, make a motion to a judge for a review of the taxation, and the judge may make such order with respect to the item in dispute as that judge considers appropriate.
(3) An objection to the taxation shall be determined upon the evidence that had been brought before the Registrar, and no further evidence shall be received in support of the motion unless the judge or the Registrar, as the case may be, otherwise orders.
(4) The costs in a review referred to in subrule (2) shall be in the discretion of the judge.
