NOTICE: Effective July 1, 2011, amendments to the Construction Lien Act are reflected in the Certificates and Notices section of Daily Commercial News. These amendments required revisions to Forms 6 and 7. The Act also stipulates that owners of land intended to be registered as a condominium publish a notice of impending registration in a construction trade newspaper, such as Daily Commercial News, at least five days and no more than fifteen days, excluding weekends and holidays, before the description is submitted for approval. Use Form 24 to submit Notices of Intention to Register a Condominium. Forms 6, 7 and 24 can be downloaded below.

How to search

Enter a word in the search box above. The search is not case sensitive. The search results will appear on this page. The most recent notices appear first.

You can restrict your search to notices published in the last 3 months or the last 12 months by clicking on the appropriate button beneath the search box. By default the search is limited to the last 12 months. If you select 3 months or 12 months, all notices in that period will be returned. If you select “All,” the number returned is limited to 200 to avoid excessive search times. If your search returns a large number of results, try the search tip below. For more information, contact DCN customer care.

Search tip: To get more precise results from your search, use more than one word when you search. For instance, if the address of the project is on Dufferin Street in Toronto, enter both “Toronto” and “Dufferin” in the search box. The search will return notices that contain both words. Also, do not include in your search term abreviated words like ‘Ltd’ that might be spelled out in some listings.

At the bottom of each notice there is an option to download the notice as a PDF. You need Acrobat Reader to view PDF files.
