Claims for lien (Form 12) must be completed and submitted through the City’s website beginning October 1, 2019. The claim submission link will be live on this page on October 1, 2019.

In the event of a web outage, a City email address will be posted for users to submit a claim for lien. This email address will only be a valid method to give a claim for lien during a web outage.

Background

On the day that s. 34(3.1) of the Construction Act comes into force (currently, Oct. 1, 2019), where the owner of the premises is a municipality, the claim for lien (Form 12) shall be given to the clerk of the municipality. Ontario Regulation 304/18, as amended by Ontario Regulation 112/19, made under the Construction Act, allows a municipality to choose a mandatory method by which the claim for lien (Form 12) shall be given under s. 34(3.1).
