Prompt payment involves the introduction of legislation that establishes firm timelines for payment of invoices associated with the construction industry. This legislation was introduced in Ontario in 2019 and has been adopted or is being assessed in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

The push for this legislation across Canada comes from trade and construction groups that identified issues with payment timelines exceeding lien periods which then provides them with limited recourse.
