Join Patrick Groom, Victor Kim, and Annik Forristal of McMillan’s National Construction Group on Wednesday, December 13th for a discussion about the Supreme Court of Canada’s recent decision in R. v. Greater Sudbury.

Following a brief overview of the case and the SCC’s split decision, this discussion will focus on the implications of the decision to the roles and responsibilities of each project party, including the owner, contractor and design consultant (architect and engineer). The discussion will be interactive and will include an extensive Q&A period.

Topics include:

  • What did the Supreme Court of Canada decide? On what points was the Court split?
  • What are the responsibilities of the owner, contractor and consultant for health and safety at a construction site?
  • What can you do as an owner, contractor and/or consultant to protect yourself from liability?
  • What terms and conditions should be included in contracts with owners, contractors and consultants?
