What is the difference between final and interlocutory orders in a civil proceeding?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Law Society of Upper Canada v Kivisto, 2016 ONSC 1400 (CanLII):

The Ball v. Donais line of cases concern the distinction between final and interlocutory orders in civil cases arise pursuant to s. 6(1)(b) of the Courts of Justice Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.43. A civil proceeding, however, is quite different than a regulatory proceeding and specifically a conduct application under the Act.
