On October 20th, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that on March 1, 2022, the ‘Builders’ Lien (Prompt Payment) Amendment Act, 2019 will be proclaimed into force. This new provincial legislation and adjudication regulations will protect and define the rights and obligations of the construction industry stakeholders by establishing reasonable payment timelines for construction projects!

The CISC, as a strong advocate, continues to encourage the development of prompt payment legislation nationwide, determined to ensure timely payments for the Canadian construction industry.

We are pleased to have reached another important milestone in our on-going efforts!
