Ontario’s New Construction Act: Managing Transitions and Effective Implementation

Toronto, February 26, 2019 - January 1, 0001

Since our last seminar, the first phase of amendments that focused on the modernization of liens and holdback rules came into force in Ontario. The second phase focuses on prompt payment and adjudication and is scheduled to follow on October 1, 2019.

As a result of the first phase of amendments, we are seeing the industry tackle major issues regarding the effect of the transitions on internal procedures, effective and efficient implementation strategies and its integration into new and ongoing projects and related agreements. Moreover, as October approaches, it is increasingly important to look ahead and consider what to expect from the second phase, including what steps should be taken to facilitate the effective implementation of the additional amendments.

Join us for an in-depth discussion about key transition issues, the implementation of the phase-one modernization and important considerations for the next phase of amendments.
