STAFF WRITER – The Ontario Construction Report
Bruce Reynolds and Sharon Vogel submitted their review of the Construction Lien Act on May 2. Ontario Construction Report asked government officials for information on when the report will be released. Here is the statement we received in response from Brendan Crawley, a spokesperson for the Ministry of the Attorney General.
“Our government is committed to modernizing the Construction Lien Act to reflect the reality of today’s construction industry and to address payment issues within the sector. That is why we asked leading construction law experts Bruce Reynolds and Sharon Vogel to lead a review of this legislation. Over the past year, Mr. Reynolds and Ms. Vogel have worked hard to consult with stakeholders on this very important topic.”
“We would like to thank them for the important work they have done. I can confirm that we received the report in May. It’s important that we take the time to carefully consider this expert advice. Our government is currently reviewing the report and the recommendations.”
