Client Focused Reforms (CFRs): Everything you need to know about the new conflicts of interest requirements (but were afraid to ask)

Events < 1 minute read

May 6, 2021
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

The June 30, 2021 deadline for registered firms and their representatives to comply with the first phase of the CFRs relating to conflicts of interest is fast approaching.

The new conflicts of interest requirements will require registrants to review and, where necessary, implement changes to their existing conflicts of interest policies and procedures. They may also require certain changes to the existing businesses or business relationships of registrants if these activities constitute material conflicts of interest including, but not limited to, referral arrangements and trading in, recommending or distributing proprietary products. Registrants who have not yet started assessing the impact of these new requirements should start the process now and attend this webinar to gather additional information.

Join McMillan on Thursday, May 6, 2021 for a panel discussion on practical questions and issues related to the new requirements and how they may impact your organization.

Topics include

  • Overview of the new conflicts of interest requirements
  • Key issues and practical tips to assist with compliance
  • FAQ’s

The 2022 Construction Labour “Open Period” – What Employers Need to Know

March 1 – April 30, 2022 is the “Open Period” for ICI collective agreements, and many non-ICI agreements, in Ontario. During this period members of construction unions can apply to the Ontario Labour Relations Board to terminate a union’s bargaining rights with their employer, or – more commonly – a rival union can apply to the Board to displace an existing union, in what is commonly known as a “raid”. During the Open Period employers will likely see increased union activity on sites as incumbent unions will seek to maintain member support, and as rival unions may try to gather support for a raid.

Join us on Wednesday, February 2nd for a discussion about what employers should expect and need to know if a decertification application or a displacement application involving their employees is filed at the Board.
