Cassels’ Construction Lawyers Present at OASBO’s Annual Conference

Event Date: 


On July 14, 2022, Mark St. Cyr, Graham Brown, Zach Flemming-Giannotti, and Stephanie Garraway presented at the Ontario Association of School Business Officials’ annual conference at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Conference Centre. The OASBO brings together dedicated professionals from school boards across Ontario who are committed to collaborative development, sharing, and promotion of leading business practices in the support of its students.

Mark and Stephanie presented on the changes and issues to the newly amended Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) 2-2020 Stipulated Price Contract, how those issues are addressed under the template CCDC 2-2020 supplementary conditions prepared by Cassels, and reviewed new contract provisions based on “lessons learned” resulting from fluctuations in the construction industry and market over the last two years.

Graham and Zach presented on prompt payment and adjudication under the Construction Act (Ontario), how those mechanisms have been implemented since coming into force in October 2019, and what the statistics show about industry use of adjudication.
