RAIC Representative from Quebec on the CCDC Panel

The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) is the national body that creates and manages construction contracts, guides and documentation. It is comprised of the key national stakeholders of Canada’s construction industry. A volunteer position is open on the CCDC panel for an RAIC representative from Quebec. The candidate must be conversant in construction contracts and possess ample experience in the design-construction industry to understand the nuances of client-contractor and client-architect relationships. The candidate should be familiar with the Civil Code as it applies to construction contracts, payment, lien rights, and related legislation. 

The CCDC operates in English but the candidate must be bilingual in both French and English.    

The volunteer position requires travel to different Canadian cities approximately 6 times a year with expenses covered by Canadian Construction Association. The CCDC ToR can be provided but the candidate will also be required to comply with the supplemental RAIC ToR for CCDC panelists.
