The Commercial Liens Act
This Act updates, codifies and consolidates existing rules with respect to the attachment and enforcement of commercial liens.
The Commercial Liens Act applies to the following types of liens:
The Act provides for a summary process before the Court of Queen's Bench for parties that do not agree with the amount or nature of a claimed lien. It also largely adopts the enforcement procedures of The Personal Property Security Act, 1993.
The Act repeals The Garage Keepers Lien Act, portions of The Hotel Keepers Act, The Warehousemen's Lien Act and what remains of The Mechanics' Lien Act, as well as repealing any general common-law commercial liens.
