As a municipality, there’s very little in daily life that
you don’t touch—everything from safety to economic
development, transportation to drinking water. Your
responsibilities are enormous. So are your challenges. Climate
change, restructuring, stretched resources, cybersecurity,
reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and an increasingly
litigious society are only a few of the concerns keeping municipal
CAOs up at night.
We can help. Our specialized expertise, strategic mindset and
timely, cost-effective response make us a friend to municipalities
of all sizes, including smaller communities that may not have the
in-house legal support of their larger neighbours. We can help you
with expropriation, land use planning, environmental issues, liability and more. Sign up for our insights to receive occasional
updates on the latest legal developments.
Building department claims: A case law update
This webinar provides an update on municipal liability in the
context of building permits and building inspections of particular
interest to smaller municipalities. It starts with a refresher on

several Supreme Court of Canada decisions and concludes with a
detailed exploration of risk management strategies.
The content of this article is intended to provide a general
guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought
about your specific circumstances.
