Careful planning is the cornerstone of any successful construction project.

With the implementation of prompt payment legislation sweeping across jurisdictions, and with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic disrupting schedules, the onus falls on project owners, managers and builders to effectively manage risk, avoid costly litigation, and ensure the best outcome for stakeholders. Is your organization prepared to effectively manage its project contracts amid uncertainties?

The Canadian Institute’s 13th Annual National Symposium on Managing Risk in Construction Contracts & Projects addresses the most critical legal challenges from contract negotiation to construction insurance, litigation, and conflict resolution. Join construction companies, public sector players and infrastructure stakeholders from east to west on an interactive virtual platform.
