Ontario’s New Construction Lien Act: An Update

Toronto, April 18, 2018 - January 1, 0001

There have been many developments since our original seminar on the proposed changes to the Construction Lien Act (Act). The final version of the Act reflected a number of changes proposed during the public consultation process.

As a result, the Act as passed differed in some respects from the one discussed at the previous seminar. Draft regulations have now been made public, and the Act is now on the verge of coming into force. Some of the amendments will come into force on July 1, 2018, while others will follow on October 1, 2019.

Join us for an in-depth discussion about the new law, how it will affect your business and how to plan for the transition.
