So, how you know whether there are signs or not is beyond me so it's probably safest to assume that paint on the road implies everyone will consider that it's a bike lane.)
Rule 153 says...
(4) A bicycle lane is a marked lane, or the part of a marked lane—
(a) beginning at a bicycle lane sign applying to the lane; and
(b) ending at the nearest of the following—
(i) an end bicycle lane sign applying to the lane;
(ii) an intersection (unless the lane is at the unbroken side of the continuing road at a T-intersection or continued across the intersection by broken lines);
(iii) if the road ends at a dead end—the end of the road.
Most "bike lanes" I've seen are not legally so or are only legal for a short distance
