Construction Contracts in Canada – Getting It Right!

BC Housing: 1.5 CPD Points


Getting construction contracts right is critical to the success of any project, and to do this you need to know which contract form best suits your project and what the terms mean. 

In this webinar, the team of lawyers heading Clark Wilson LLP’s Infrastructure, Construction & Procurement group will review and discuss the forms of construction contracts typically used in Canada, along with the key terms of each agreement. They will also review in detail the recent changes made to the CCDC 2 (2020) standard form of contract, including the new prompt payment regime that is coming into effect in many Canadian jurisdictions. 

Main topics covered in this session: 

  • Types of construction contracts 

  • Key issues 

  • CCDC 2 (2020) Fixed Price Contract 

  • CCDC 30 (2018) Integrated Project Delivery Contract 

At the end of the presentation, there will be a Q&A period where participants are encouraged to ask any questions they may have. If you would like to submit your questions before the start of the session, please send them to
