With the other party's permission, you can serve notice by e-mail so I don't see a problem with e-mailing an offer to settle as long as the offer meets all the requirements.

However, you would probably want to the other side to confirm receipt.

One of the requirements:


Quote:
OFFER TO BE SIGNED BY PARTY AND LAWYER
(4) An offer shall be signed personally by the party making it and also by the party’s lawyer, if any. O. Reg. 114/99, r. 18 (4).
If you are going to make an offer, you want to make one that is compliant with rule 18 if you hope to recover costs.

Would a judge accept an email offer? Maybe, maybe not. Why risk it? Also, an email message demonstrates a certain lack of seriousness in the offer. Conversely, a signed offer conveys a certain amount of gravitas and also promotes the expectation that the other side will consider the contents without any undue haste.
