TitlePrompt Payment and Adjudication (1 PDU)
WhenJune 18th, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Description

The Canadian construction industry is now in the midst of significant change with lien reform, the introduction of prompt payment initiatives and adjudication both provincially and federally. These changes, meant to improve the payment process and provide more efficient handling of construction disputes during the life of a project, will drive wholesale cultural change in the construction & building industry.
Canada is one of the few developed nations who have not yet fully adopted prompt payment legislation. Currently, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia have passed new prompt payment and adjudication legislation with BC, Alberta, Manitoba and New Brunswick now underway developing their own legislation.

This webinar session will provide the current state of prompt payment developments and adjudication in Canada, how it works and the issues it faces during implementation. The Ontario model, and its challenges, will be discussed which is now law and some of the considerations the Alberta government will need to consider and address as it goes forward with its own future adoption of similar legislation.
