View a focused presentation and interactive discussion on two decisions that will have a substantial impact on your construction law practice.

The Ontario Court of Appeal’s reasons in Landmark II Inc. v. 1535709 Ontario Limited have garnered significant attention. In the context of this decision, it is important for practitioners to consider: (i) what are the consequences of accepting a breach of contract as a repudiation?; (ii) when is it necessary to make an election between the alternative remedies of quantummeruit and a claim for damages?; and (iii) what are the consequences of failing to make that election?

Similarly, the Court of Appeal’s ruling in Belmont Concrete Finishing Co. v. Marshall (2011)must be taken into account when seeking to advance a claim for personal liability for breach of trust under section 13 of the Construction Lien Act. In particular, we have been provided with specific guidance on the evidentiary burden that a plaintiff must meet in order to establish entitlement to this powerful remedy.

The roundtable format of this program gives us the opportunity to explore the impact of these decisions thoroughly in small groups, under the guidance of knowledgeable facilitators. The video will open with a brief presentation on each decision.
