: Client Update - Supreme Court of Canada Rules on Tercon

February 12, 2010

On February 12, 2010 the Supreme Court of Canada released its much-anticipated decision in Tercon Contractors Ltd v. British Columbia (Ministry of Transportation and Highways) dealing with the enforceability of exclusion clauses in the tendering and RFP process. The Supreme
