There are three versions of the Construction Act (previously known as the Construction Lien Act) that may apply to a construction project:
- The Construction Lien Act before it was amended on July 1, 2018;
- The Construction Act, as amended on July 1, 2018; and
- The Construction Act, as amended on October 1, 2019.
The adjudication and prompt payment provisions of the Construction Act came into force on October 1, 2019. Section 87.3(4) of the Construction Act contains transition rules.
