Construction Dispute Resolution Seminar Series - Session 1: Update on the Prompt Payment Regime and Amendments to the Builders’ Lien Act - Session 1

Calgary - In-Person, January 27, 2023 - 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM

The Blakes Construction Dispute Resolution group is pleased to present a four-part series on how parties in a construction project can protect themselves.

To get things started, we invite you to join us for our first seminar on the ever-so-important topic of builders’ liens. The discussion will focus on the Prompt Payment & Amendments to the Builders’ Lien Act. It has now been five months since the Builders’ Lien (Prompt Payment) Amendment Act, 2020 came into force. These amendments reformed Alberta’s builder’s lien legislation and led to significant changes in construction contracts province-wide. In this presentation, we will recap the key amendments, address frequently asked questions about Alberta’s prompt payment regime, and provide our perspective about where Alberta may be heading with the new legislation given the experience in other Canadian jurisdictions.

Stay tuned for invitations to future sessions in this series. While we encourage you to join all sessions, full participation is not required. Please note that these programs will be delivered in English and are available in person only.
