What are the costs of a contempt motion brought against the Respondent?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Nelson v. Davidson, 2021 ONCJ 70 (CanLII):

[20] The respondent submitted that costs should be discounted because no offers to settle were made. However, this is only a factor when there can be some reasonable element of compromise to the motion. See: Beaver v. Hill, supra. Here, lesser enforcement options had already been attempted by the applicant, without any sustained change to the respondent’s conduct. She continued to arbitrarily deny access. The applicant reasonably pursued the contempt remedy.
