Bill 162, The Enforcement of Money Judgments Amendment Act, 2014 and the companion regulations, The Enforcement of Money Judgments Amendment Regulations, 2016 are proclaimed in force effective May 30, 2016. The amendments include:
- Extending the effective period for a notice of seizure of employment income from 12 months to two years;
- Giving Sheriffs the authority to immediately ensure that the title to land is clear before the title is transferred to a third party purchaser. This applies when there is an agreement that payment will be made out of the proceeds of a land sale to address a debt before being sold to another party;
- Appointing a Director of Sheriffs ;
- Authorizing the Director of Sheriffs to stop pursuing money from debtors if the amount owed is less than the cost to recoup it; and
- Authorizing the Director of Sheriffs to provide the forms under the Act rather than requiring the passage of regulations.
The forms under the Act will continue to be made available electronically on line at the Queen’s Printer under The Enforcement of Money Judgments Act link.
