Ontario Introduces Bill 142, Construction Lien Amendment Act, 2017: It’s much more than just liens!

The Bill follows upon a report commissioned by the Ontario government and prepared by Bruce Reynolds and Sharon Vogel entitled “Striking the Balance: Expert Review of Ontario’s Construction Lien Act”.
