As members involved in the construction industry should know, payment delays have serious and negative effects on your business, and the efficiency of Canada’s construction sector.

HRAI has been working hard for many years with our partners in the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) to fight payment delays. Incredible progress was made in 2016—now we need your help.

Bill S-224, the Canada Prompt Payment Act is at a crucial stage of deliberation in the Canadian Senate. This bill will have a major impact on reducing payment delays on federal government contracts and will set the tone for national discussions on prompt payment laws. HRAI is asking our members and your colleagues in the construction industry to use NTCCC’s letter template to send a message of support to Senators in your home province.  To send a letter visit www.promptpayment.ca, scroll down the page and click “Send this Letter to Your Senator” and follow the on screen instructions.

HRAI is a member of the NTCCC.  For more information please contact: Scott Papp, Manager, Divisional Programs (Contractors) at spapp@hrai.ca or 1-800-267-2231 ext. 233.
