Payment Survey

Delinquent payments are often a serious problem for pension and other trust funds in the construction industry.  The purpose of this survey is to obtain information on the scale of the delinquent payment problem and the costs that result from delinquency.  

This survey is sponsored by Prompt Payment Ontario (PPO).  PPO is an alliance of contractor associations, unions, suppliers, general contractors, pension trust funds, and others who have an interest is seeing prompt payment legislation enacted in Ontario.  PPO's sole purpose is to persuade the Ontario government that delinquent payment is a growing problem in the construction industry and that legislation is needed to ensure that money flows through the contractor supply chain, as it is intended to.  Prompt payment statutes are now the norm in the United States and the European Union.
