Claims for lien (Form 12) given to Toronto Transit Commission must be completed and submitted through the City of Toronto’s web portal which will be available at www.toronto.ca/liens and live on that page on October 1, 2019.

In the event of a web portal outage, www.toronto.ca/liens will post an email address for users to submit a claim for lien.  This email address will only be a valid method to give a claim for lien to Toronto Transit Commission 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).
