Following extensive consultation with industry stakeholders, the results of the review of the Construction Lien Act has been released. The review process examined a broad range of important and often contentious issues in the industry including prompt payment, holdback, construction dispute resolution, and P3/AFP projects. The recommendations of the review could have a far-reaching impact on participants across the construction industry including owners, general contractors, subcontractors and lenders. There is likely no aspect of construction or construction disputes in Ontario that will be untouched by the proposed changes to the Act. Please join us for an insightful webinar on the potential impact of the proposed changes. We have established a panel of experts from key stakeholder groups to examine the business implications of the proposed changes on the construction industry in Ontario. Our panelists include Doug Wass and Mark Lawrence from Macfarlanes LLP in London, England, who will provide insights from Britain where similar prompt payment and mandatory dispute resolution legislation for the construction industry has been in place for some time.
