Canada: Major Renovation: What Ontario's Proposed Construction Act Means For Projects And How To Prepare
Last Updated: June 27 2017

Following extensive consultation with industry stakeholders, on May 31, 2017, the Ontario government introduced Bill 142 that, if passed, would significantly amend and modernize the Construction Lien Act.

To help navigate the proposed amendments, we invite you to join us on Wednesday June 28th where we have established a panel of experts to examine the business implications of the proposed changes. Our panelists include Doug Wass and Mark Lawrence, both seasoned U.K. construction lawyers, who will provide additional insight, tips and traps into how similar U.K. legislation has been implemented in practice. Topics discussed will include:

  • the new prompt payment regime
  • the new mandatory adjudication regime
  • clarifications regarding the Act's application to Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) projects; and
  • technical amendments relating to holdback, liens, bonding, and trusts

The presentation will be followed by an informal cocktail reception.

For those not able to attend in person at our Toronto office, we invite you to participate by webinar: click here to sign up for the webinar.
