Payment in the Construction Industry is a problem. This creates problems for both the Owner and the Contractor as well as the other participants involved with the project (Consultant, Subcontractors, Sub-Subcontractors and Suppliers). 

The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) and the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) publish standard contracts and guides for the Construction Industry. 

In this half-day workshop, the Payment Process in Standard Contracts (CCDC-2 Stipulated Price Contract, CCA-1 Stipulated Price Subcontract, CCA-19 Stipulated Price Sub-Subcontract) will be reviewed along with the contract language from non-standard contracts which can delay payment. 

It is important to recognize when your client is trying to work language into the contract which delays payment (Pay-if-Paid, Pay-when-Paid, “Notwithstanding” clauses). 

Guides covered by the course: 

  • CCA 28 – A Guide to Improving Cash Flow in the Construction Industry. 

  • CCA 50 – A Prime Contractors Guide to Project Financing and Payment Security. 

  • CCA 53 – Trade Contractors Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts. 

  • CCA Banking Guide for the Canadian Construction Association. 

  • CCDC 12 – Project Financial Information Disclosure Form. 


Delivery Method:  Virtual Session - GoToTraining Platform.  

Course Fee Includes: Access to the course, course materials, and a digital certificate upon completion. 


This course is delivered in partnership with local and provincial construction associations across Canada. You will be participating with a group of industry peers from multiple regions. 

Sharing a single registration between two or more individuals is not permitted. Please register each person that will be in attendance.


There are no prerequisites for this course.
