Info & Inquiry Sessions: Prompt Payment Legislation in BC
Join us for a presentation on the background, purpose, and strategies to enact prompt payment legislation in British Columbia. Dana M. Taylor, Executive Vice President and CEO of the Mechanical Contractors Association of BC, will offer a background and overview of industry requests, provide an update on the progress being made with the provincial government, and discuss next steps, such as tools available and how you can become more involved. At the end of the presentation, there will be time for questions and comments. Please come prepared!
Two 1.5 hour sessions will be held, one in Victoria and one in Nanaimo:

You may also be interested in filling out this B.C. Prompt Payment Survey, which was built on the previous survey completed by the Deputy Minister’s Industry Infrastructure Forum (DMIIF). The DMIIF was created in January of 2013 in response to calls from British Columbia’s industrial, commercial, and institutional construction industry for a stronger relationship with the provincial government.
