A construction lien can be a powerful means through which rights can be protected and payment for services rendered can be secured. The legal framework for construction liens in Ontario is provided by the province’s Construction Act (the Act). Liens are also governed by a unique mix of specific rules, including provisions from the Act, the Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure, as well the jurisdictional rules and practices applicable at the specific branch of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that will ultimately hear the lien action.
