CPD resources to help stay up-to-date on the ever-changing legislative landscape

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program materials continue to be an excellent resource for keeping current on new and amended Ontario legislation. These materials typically summarize statute and rule changes, and provide valuable advice for legal practitioners on adapting their practices and improving client outcomes. Here is a selection of recently received CPD program materials that focus on key legislative developments in Ontario family, construction, municipal/planning and residential tenancies law:

Construction Lien Amendment Act, 2017, SO 2017, c 24 – Bill 142
