Yes, as long as they were doing business in your jurisdiction, which for AC, means anywhere in the country. You would also have to have a connection with the province/territory where you file( reside there).

Say you have a beef if something untoward happened to you while flying Air Canada (say a screwed up flight which causes you all kinds of grief) or something with Aeroplan which remained unsolved, could you take them to small claims court?

Say you lived in Whitehorse could you file there and would an Air Canada rep have to attend in Whitehorse or? If the amount is small - say $1,000 - would they bother defending themselves?
