A Trade Contractor’s Guide to Construction Contracts

The Canadian Construction Association Trade Contractors Council published a new CCA 53 in 2016 to assist trade contractors in reviewing contracts, no matter what their position in relation to the project.  CCA 53 highlights the important clauses that frequently appear in construction contracts or subcontracts which can adversely affect the rights and obligations of trade contractors.This half-day session will address trade contractors’ contractual responsibilities and analyze the checklist of important clauses identified in CCA 53, e.g. design responsibility, flow-down, scope of subcontract work, payment, insurance, protection-of-work, implied vs. expressed warranties, temporary site facilities, delay, changes etc.


Discussions will focus on what to be on the look-out for when reviewing the construction contracts you bid and sign.  Language of CCA 1 ‘Stipulated Price Subcontract’ will be used throughout this session as examples of fair and equitable provisions.  Onerous provisions deviating substantially from the standard CCA 1 wording should serve as warning signals to trade contractors!

Attendees will receive a hardcopy of the new CCA 53 and CCA 1.


This session was designed for trade Contractor owners, executives and contract administrators and allied professionals in the construction industry.



  • John Rasenberg, Chair of CCA Trade Contractors Council and Member of CCA Executive Committee
