Hi there. Please explain the situation in some more detail. What exactly has happened?

How much are you owed?
He will have to be sued in small claims court. You can self represent and do that remotely or you can pay a paralegal to represent you if you need to. You can't pay a lawyer because the legal fees will be more than what you're suing for if you end up having to go to trial.
Here is a link to the information that you should read about small claims court. You will find that you can do everything remotely except for having this person served with the claim:
Does that help?
Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.
What I think you should do is hire a paralegal to send a demand letter. If that doesn't work then I would suggest that you self represent and I can help you through the site. I don't think that you should be paying more money towards this situation. You are only get a small amount of your fees back if you win in court because small claims court is really set up for the south representing party.
You will not have any problem at all proving your claim.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer and paralegal Referral Service. You will be given the name of a paralegal and can consult with them and the first half hour will be free.Here is a link to the site:https://lsrs.lso.ca/lsrs/welcome
