As part of its ongoing CONSTRUCTION LEADERSHIP SERIES, LDCA is pleased to present April 27, 7:00 to 9:00 am, at LDCA Offices:

CLAR II: Are We There Yet?

CLAR (aka Construction Lien Act Reform aka Bill 142 aka the Construction Act) is the most important legislation targeted to the construction industry in Ontario in decades. Previously, LDCA hosted an industry forum on CLAR on March 1, 2017. It was very well attended, informative and received.
In December 2017 CLAR passed into law. However, CLAR will be implemented in a staged process over a number of years. The first stage of implementation will occur in mid-2018. What has happened since then? What is the status of the important elements of CLAR? What, if any, were the legislative surprises? How long before CLAR is implemented? What business practices should you begin consider to change?
On April 27 (7:00 am) join us at LDCA for CLAR II: Are We There Yet? Register now into one of these two-hour long Q&A sessions with two of our regions top lawyers.

The Forum Leaders, each who is an expert in this field, are:

David Swift; Lawyer, Advocates LLP

David’s practice focuses on construction and other commercial litigation matters, as well as on secured enforcement and other insolvency matters. Suppliers and general contractors call on David to help resolve numerous construction-related problems, while business owners turn to him when facing commercial
litigation challenges such as non-payment and breach of contract allegations. Suppliers and general contractors retain him to help resolve various construction-related problems. David has prepared several papers and has been presented on construction lien and insolvency topics. David is a Director of the LDCA.

Kyle MacLean; Lawyer, Advocates LLP

Kyle’s business litigation practice focuses on construction litigation for general contractors and large sized subcontractors in the ICI Sector and professional negligence defence litigation for engineers. Kyle assists construction firms with issues and claims arising throughout all project phases: from pre-tender bidding concerns through to post-completion dispute resolution and litigation.

Key areas to be explored include:

Where did we Start?

What are the key, need to know aspects, of Bill 142, that you as a GC or TC need to know?


Where are We?
Modernizing construction lien and holdback rules are the first set of regulations to be drafted and then implemented. What is the status of the drafting? Are there any surprises heading to the industry?


What will our Destination look like?
How will these new regulations change the construction landscape? How will current/new contracts/projects be affected? Will these regulatory changes translate into costs/benefits for GC’s and TC’s and how?

What Business Practices will I need to change?
What business practices will I have to change?
