ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE

Effectively navigating risk remains a central and continuous challenge throughout all phases of construction projects. From project inception to completion, the complex nature of construction with numerous stakeholders, schedules, and voluminous invoices, change orders, and project correspondences demands meticulous attention. Moreover, navigating an industry impacted by both global and local factors, such as supply chain volatility and the Canadian labour shortage crisis, necessitates a nuanced understanding of challenges that can either make or break a project’s success.

That is why the Canadian Institute’s 16th National Conference on Navigating Risk in Construction Contracts & Projects will address the most critical challenges faced by the construction industry.

While every construction project is inherently unique, with distinct timelines, resources, priorities, and risks, our robust two-day conference ensures that attendees gain valuable insights and strategies applicable to their specific projects.
