If my lien rights expire, do all of my other rights expire with them?

No. Lien rights under the Construction Lien Act are separate from, and in addition to, other (i.e. contractual, trust) rights that a person might have.  Even if your lien rights expire, you can still commence an action to pursue other remedies.  That said, you still have to be careful of the expiry of limitation periods under the Ontario Limitations Act.
