The OGCA has worked long and hard on the development of the new Construction Act that has been implemented in Ontario.
The first part of that Act came into force July 1, 2018. It dealt with modernizing the past Lien Act as well as introducing requirements for bonding and a host of new forms that must be used in order to be in compliance with this Act.
The OGCA and its team have worked hard to prepare a handbook to assist executives in the construction industry in dealing with these changes.
All members will be receiving a copy of this and it will also be available online through the member’s only section. Non-members are now able to purchase a copy through our website.
The work is not finished. The second part of the Construction Act comes into play October 1, 2019 and will deal with adjudication and prompt payment. Our team is hard at work preparing Part Two of our handbook to assist members in dealing with these final changes that will come into play at that time.
