Contracting Strategy Best Practice

This Best Practice has been prepared as a guideline for Owners and Contractors (re: their sub Contractors) to facilitate the development of Contracting Strategy for industrial Projects in Alberta. Its purpose is to ensure that Project Owners have comprehensively considered Project specifics (goals/objectives, work environment, scopes of work, Project and contract risk allocation), weighed the pros and cons in consultation with all of the key Parties and clearly articulated the appropriate Contracting Strategy for the Project.

The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
