A creditor that has an order for payment or recovery of money may, pursuant to r. 60.08 of the Rules, enforce it by garnishment of debts. The law is clear that an insurer’s obligation to pay insurance monies to its insured is a debt that can be garnished: see Abuzour v. Heydary, 2014 ONSC 6229 at paras. 18 to 29.
