Announcement from the Government of Alberta on August 29, 2022:
Stronger construction rules will bolster industry
A new prompt payment framework ushers in payment timelines and a dispute resolution process for Alberta’s construction sector.
Formerly known as the Builder’s Lien Act, the Prompt Payment and Construction Lien Act is now in force. The new act creates rules for the timing of payments and sets out a streamlined adjudication process for disputes related to payment or work performed as an alternative to court.
