Overview Presentation of the Construction Lien Act Report
Published on: 06/10/2016
In follow-up to the September 29th bulletin on the publication of the Construction Lien Act Report (available by clicking on this link), attached is an overview presentation of the Report, given by its authors Bruce Reynolds and Sharon Vogel. The presentation provides insight into the key recommendations made and the areas where significant stakeholder feedback was received.
The Ministry of the Attorney General is now in the process of drafting reform legislation for the Act, which is proposed to move forward in the Spring 2017 sessions. While the authors of the Report recommend drafting entirely new legislation to govern the lien, adjudication, and prompt payment processes, it remains unclear whether the government intends to reform the existing Act or start anew.
