Representatives of the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) were in Ottawa on October 19th to meet with senior government officials and lobby Members of Parliament to encourage support for prompt payment legislation at the federal level.

Bill S-224, the Canada Prompt Payment Act¸ passed unanimously in the Senate last spring and has been sponsored by the Hon. Judy Sgro, M.P. for Humber River—Black Creek. 

The federal push preceded efforts last week at Queen’s Park as members of Prompt Payment Ontario work to support Bill 142, which has moved to committee stage and is poised to pass before the holiday break of the Ontario legislature. As both measures progress, trade contractors are preparing to encourage adoption of similar frameworks across Canada that builds on the success of other jurisdictions that have legislation in place.
