Knowing Your Limits Under the Builders Lien Act: Claim of Lien Filing, Holdback Periods and Certificates of Completion

The Builders Lien Act provides a very useful tool in the toolbox of an unpaid subcontractor or trade contractor, but has set processes and timelines that must be followed in order to allow a subcontractor or trade contractor to avail itself of the Act’s rights and remedies. However, the Builders Lien Act is commonly misunderstood including with respect to certificates of completion, the claim of lien filing period and the holdback period.  The learning objectives of this presentation include:

  • Know and understand how to obtain the issuance of a certificate of completion.
  • Know the claim of lien filing period and related triggering events.
  • Know the holdback period and related triggering events.

The Journey to Net Zero

We’re all talking about climate action but what does it actually mean for the mechanical contracting industry in BC? What steps is your company taking to facilitate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions? How prepared are you to meet the targets that have been set by the federal, provincial, regional and local governments?  It’s time to cut through the chatter of climate policy and get clear on the facts. Whether you are involved in new construction or the built environment, the journey to net-zero is well on its way. It’s time to catch up – time to prepare your business and your people for climate targets, new regulations and new “green jobs” in the mechanical contracting trades.
