This program is part of the OsgoodePD “Deconstructing Ontario’s New Construction Act” Series!

Get essential insight and advice from key industry players and experts who helped write the new law!

Forearm yourself for success on your construction projects with this classic foundational program as part of the OsgoodePD Deconstructing Ontario’s New Construction Act Series.

Ontario’s new Construction Act brings the most sweeping legal changes that the construction industry has seen in a generation. The landscape is more complex as owners, contractors and suppliers struggle to adjust their operations and processes to accommodate the new obligations and to work within a fast-track adjudication system designed to resolve payment disputes quickly and efficiently. Join our expert faculty of construction lawyers and professionals – many of whom helped to write the new law – to learn the critical information you need to help manage the operational and cultural changes on every project.

Designed for the construction industry, this intensive original program will cover the critical issues and offer you a comprehensive overview of the new legal reforms, including:

  • The key reforms and how to manage them in practice
  • How to use the new prompt payment regime most effectively
  • Tips to manage claims in the new adjudication system and what to watch out for
  • Practical considerations for owners, general/major contractors, and trades, suppliers and labour
  • Practical perspectives from owners, intermediate payers and ultimate payees
