Ontario Construction Lien Act Review Information Update

There has been a lot of activity over the past few months and a mountain of documentation, reports, and information has been compiled. We are providing this update on what has transpired to keep members informed.

Prompt Payment Ontario (PPO), the consortium of trade associations that the Ontario Glass & Metal Association has partnered with, conducted a survey of 535 companies. Thank you to the many OGMA members that participated in the survey. Click here to download the survey results.
