Become a Construction Adjudicator

The Federal Government has announced that it is going to be passing regulations providing for adjudication of disputes relating to Federal construction projects. The Regulations will likely come into effect this Fall.

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 or background can be used to waive the requirement for training. Training for the initial group who want to be adjudicators will take place on October 2-3, 2023, via ZOOM. If you are unable to attend this training, there will be other training offered in 2024.
