Become a Construction Adjudicator

The Federal Government has passed legislation permitting resolution of construction related disputes on Federal construction projects through adjudication. The Federal Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act and the related Regulations were proclaimed in force on December 9, 2023.

The Canada Dispute Adjudication for Construction Contracts (CanDACC) has been appointed as the Adjudicator Authority to manage the adjudications, and to train and qualify adjudicators who will make decisions for parties when they have construction disputes.

CanDACC is looking for a diverse group of construction professionals who would like to work part-time as adjudicators. Engineers, project managers, architects, quantity surveyors, lawyers and others who have at least 10 years of construction experience and have an interest in adjudication may apply.

Adjudicator applicants must also complete the following two-step application process:

  1. Step 1 – Construction Adjudication and CanDACC Orientation Program*
  2. Step 2 – Adjudicator Application Process

*Every adjudicator applicant must complete the Construction Adjudication and CanDACC Orientation Program. No other training can be used to waive the requirement for this training. The next Training course for those who wish to apply to become a certified CanDACC adjudicator will take place on June 24-25, 2024 live via the ZOOM platform.
