When the wait for a court date can now be measured in years, it’s essential to manage project risk early and effectively to protect your organization’s reputational and financial well-being

The Canadian Institute is proud to present our 11th Annual Managing Risk in Construction Contracts and Projects (West) conference – an event designed specifically to give your team the practical strategies they need to keep your project moving and avoid costly claims and litigation.

Join your peers in Edmonton on January 29th and 30th, 2019 for two days of timely industry updates, practical risk management strategies, and forward-thinking discussions on the issues keeping Western Canada’s construction professionals up at night. Hear seasoned experts from a cross-section of construction and infrastructure disciplines address issues including:
