ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE

The annual conference on Managing Risk in Construction Contracts & Projects, Western Canada Edition, has been specifically designed to provide project owners, managers, and builders with practical strategies to reduce risk and effectively manage project contracts amid uncertainties.

With critical challenges arising from pending changes to Alberta’s construction law and the legal ramifications of delay claims during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s essential to know how to keep your project moving and avoid costly claims and litigation.

While each project is unique, with different timelines, resources, priorities and risks, our robust two-day conference guarantees that you will walk away with new strategies or insights for your particular project. Don’t miss two days of timely updates and forward-thinking discussions on the critical issues impacting Western Canada’s construction professionals.
