The Construction Act: Time for an Update, Again (?!)

Date & Time: Thursday Feb 15, 2024 at 9:30 am
Duration: 50 minutes
Location: Room A
Registration: $50 plus hst


In this must-see session, we will discuss the significant changes made to the Construction Act of Ontario in the last few years — including the introduction of rules calling for the prompt payment of invoices and a brand-new adjudication regime to deal with disputes – and consider whether these innovations are working effectively in 2024 as the drafters of the legislation originally intended. We’ll highlight the key problems with the new Act, based on the industry’s experiences with it over the last 5 years, and explore what needs to be done to fix it for the benefit of everyone involved in construction.
