2016 Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario (ECAO) Industry Conference
The Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario was founded in 1948 to serve and represent the interests of the electrical contracting industry. Over its history, ECAO has been committed to addressing the needs of the industry by providing a variety of services directly to the membership, and by making representations on behalf of the entire industry to government and industry colleagues. Its success has been due to the support and active participation of the industry. The ECAO membership consists of bona fide electrical contractors with a contractual relationship with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). Glenn Ackerley, Chair of the Construction practice at WeirFoulds, will be speaking on the proposed changes to the Construction Lien Act. The Expert Review of the Construction Lien Act in Ontario will lead to the first major overhaul of this significant legislation in over 30 years. Everyone involved in the construction industry will be affected by the wide-sweeping changes proposed by the expert. The talk will cover the process of consultation with the industry, the expert’s key recommendations in his report to the Provincial Government, and what can be expected moving forward. If the proposed changes become law, what will they mean to you? For more information, and to register for the conference, please visit the Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario website.
