Please join BLG as we host a virtual roundtable discussion with in-house counsel from Canada's leading contractors.

Construction companies today face common challenges. This event is an opportunity to bring everyone together to share and benefit from the group's collective experiences and to give everyone the opportunity to network at a time when in-person events are not an option.

The format will be a series of short presentations by BLG on each of the topics listed below. Following each presentation, we will open it up to an interactive group discussion facilitated by our moderator, Daniel Boan.

  • Blockchain applications in construction industry contract - Marin Leci
  • A contractor's duty of care for pure economic loss: The Supreme Court of Canada revisits its decision in Winnipeg Condo in 1688782 Ontario Inc. v. Maple Leaf Foods, 2020 SCC 35 - Grant Mayovsky
  • Don't mind the nosy owner: Ontario Court of Appeal Changes the OH&S landscape - Kara Takagi
  • Arbitrating a construction dispute under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) – Philippe Boisvert
  • Keeping the "F" word off of your construction site - Denise L. Bambrough

No preparation is required on the part of the participants. The Chatham House Rule governs all discussion to allow an open and candid expression of ideas and insights. To facilitate an open dialogue, please review the Chatham House Rule prior to the discussion.

An Uber Eats voucher will be provided to all registered attendees prior to the event so you can enjoy lunch or an afternoon snack with us. We hope you can join us!

Please RSVP by December 3, 2021. Want to participate? Please submit any questions you would like addressed through the RSVP link. If you have any questions about this event, please email RVSPMontreal@blg.com
