Federal Prompt Payment Act to Become Law; Budget Implementation Act passes Senate of Canada

On the evening of June 20, 2019, the Senate of Canada passed Bill C-97, The Budget Implementation Act, which included the Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act.

At that time, it is expected that the Governor General will visit Parliament to sign these bills into law, at which point Canada will have its first federal prompt payment law.

The CISC will continue to keep you updated on the progression of this story.
Congratulations to the Canadian construction industry!
