CCDC seminars

CCDC members who helped develop the documents will conduct the seminars. Those members will provide background information on key provisions and significant changes to previous documents.

The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) is launching a series of cross-country seminars between April and May 2018.

The seminars will introduce new and updated documents, with a focus on project delivery methods as well as procurement and contracting requirements.

“We are very pleased with the quality of the seminars and the amount of important information we will be able to share through these sessions,” said Mark Mulholland, CCDC chair. “Any participant in the construction industry including owners, procurement authority representatives, consultants, contractors, and any party involved in the construction project supply chain should have plenty to take away from these sessions.”

Each seminar will be split into a morning and an afternoon session. Attendees can choose to attend one session or both.


The morning session, “Project Delivery – Choosing the Best Method,” will introduce CCDC 10: A Guide to Construction Project Delivery Methods and CCDC 30: Integrated Project Delivery Contract.

The afternoon session will focus on procurement and contracts. It will introduce CCDC 23: A Guide to Calling Bids and Awarding Construction Contracts, a document for procurement authorities.

The session will also introduce CCDC Master Specification for Division 00 – Procurement and Contracting Requirements. This new master specification is a first for CCDC and part of a longer-term effort to introduce more specification documents through CCDC.

In addition to the morning and afternoon session, attendees will receive a luncheon presentation on the following updated documents: CCDC 9A and 9B (Statutory Declarations), CCDC 11: Contractors Qualification Statement and CCDC 40: Mediation and Arbitration Rules. Attendees will also receive electronic versions of the new CCDC 23, CCDC Master Specification for Division 00, CCDC 9A/9B, CCDC 11 and CCDC 40.
