Thomas G. Heintzman, O.C., Q.C., L.L.D. (Hon.) FCIArb
This website is intended to encourage discussion about recent developments in construction law in Canada.
The commentary on the website will relate to legislation and case law. Each item for discussion will be set out individually. The item will have a short description of the subject matter. Then a lengthier discussion of the item will follow. The discussion is solely a matter of my personal view and opinion and does not constitute legal advice.
The discussion will generally follow the subjects addressed in my book: Goldsmith and Heintzman on Canadian Building Contracts (5th ed. Carswells). Reference to that text will be made from time to time as “CBC”, that is Canadian Building Contracts. However, a broader range of subjects will be addressed in this site than those addressed in CBC.
I welcome any views about the commentary in this website and hope that a dialogue will develop about the distinctive aspects of construction law in Canada.
