Article Summary: 

The Construction Act (previously known as the Construction Lien Act) that came into force on July 1, 2018, has an impact on condominium corporations in Ontario. One of the most significant changes is that unit owners can now vacate a lien from their specific unit by posting security or paying an amount to the court. The Act also contains several other amendments, including a new dispute resolution mechanism, small claims court jurisdiction in construction matters under $25,000, new thresholds for substantial performance, and timelines for preserving and perfecting liens, among others.
