The OWL (Ontario Writs Locator) service, available through the Teranet eXpress® website, allows end users to search across all 49 offices of the Ministry of the Attorney General (MAG) writs database, simultaneously. The OWL report provides the writ number and identifies the location of the sheriff/enforcement office for any executions retrieved. This information can then be used to search writs by number and obtain writs detail reports.
