The project my company was working on is located in Toronto but I live in Kitchener-Waterloo and my lawyer is in Ayr. Can the action to perfect my company’s lien be started in Kitchener-Waterloo so it’s more convenient when we have to go to Court?

No. Under the Construction Lien Act (section 53), the action to perfect the lien must be started in the office of the local registrar of the court in the area where the improvement is located.
