|Title||Prompt Payment and Adjudication (1 PDU)|
|When||June 18th @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am|
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.
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.
