Forestry Service Providers Protection Act (Bill 21)

The Forestry Service Providers Protection Act was enacted to meet the government’s commitment to strengthen payment protection for logging contractors.

The Act includes 2 distinct components:  a contractor’s lien on forest products and charge on accounts; and a Compensation Fund.

  • The Compensation Fund will assist contractors who suffer losses when a licensee they have provided services to becomes insolvent.

  • Contractors will be able to use the Personal Properties Registry to register a Lien or charge on accounts.  A small fee is charged for registering a Lien (similar to other uses of the Registry).
