    Too many construction companies in BC have had to close up shop because they weren’t paid for work they’ve completed. And millions of dollars have been wasted in risk mitigation, fees, interest payments and penalties. 

    Our provincial government is waiting to take an official position on prompt payment legislation despite years of sustained and united advocacy across BC's construction industry. 

    This is your chance to speak directly to — and hear from — the BC Attorney General’s office on this urgent issue. 

    What you can expect: 

    • A backgrounder on the issue and solution from industry associations 
    • A presentation from the Attorney General’s office: their current position and plans for the future 
    • The opportunity to express your opinion and ask questions of the associations and the Attorney General’s office 

    Let’s show Attorney General David Eby how important this issue is to BC’s construction industry – Make the time. Tell your story. Register today.
