Following Ontario's example, on November 20, 2018, the Government of Saskatchewan introduced Bill 152, the Builders' Lien (Prompt Payment) Amendment Act. Bill 152 mirrors, in many respects, the new provisions on prompt payment and interim adjudication found in the Ontario Construction Act.

The Bill passed 3rd reading on May 2nd with unanimous consent.  The next steps will be to work on regulations, but the expectation is to have this in effect by the end of 2019.

HRAI applauds the Saskatchewan Government for introducing and passing this legislation.  Let’s hope more provinces follow the lead of Ontario, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan!
