Legislative Newsflash Ontario - Construction Act Changes - Dec 2018

Publication date:
December 18, 2018
Article Summary: 

The article discusses the amendments made to the Construction Lien Act, which has been renamed the Construction Act, effective from July 1, 2018. The amendments aim to modernize construction lien and holdback rules, improve payment timelines for workers and businesses, and make payment disputes more efficient. The new rules also impact claimants seeking to preserve a lien against a condominium project, requiring them to give notice of the lien's preservation to the condominium corporation and every unit owner. Unit owners are now required to go to court and post security to obtain a discharge of the lien on their specific unit. Additional amendments for a dispute resolution mechanism and a prompt payment system are set to be implemented on October 1, 2019.
