Navigating Prompt Payment and Adjudication in Saskatchewan

This session will provide an overview of the new prompt payment and adjudication provisions in The Builders’ Lien Act, which came into force in Saskatchewan on March 1, 2022. The session will address the legal obligations for each player on the construction project, but also provide practical tips and considerations for consultants before and after the project is underway. This will include Misty walking you through your requirements, both as consultants and as suppliers in the construction chain.

11:00 - 12:00 PM

 

John Lax, SaskBuilds Director of Industry Engagement

Government’s Implementation of Prompt Payment

The exemption of engineering, architectural, and land surveying services from Prompt Payment’s regulations has created confusion in the industry. Not contemplating all implications of this exemption may have created unintended consequences. SaskBuilds is seeking industry input to ensure a more balanced approach to prompt payment implementation.

Maria Markatos, Senior Crown Counsel, Ministry of Justice and
Attorney General
, author of Saskatchewan’s Prompt Payment Legislation, will add insight to this conversation.
