OGMA Newsletter – August 2015

The Ontario Attorney General has commissioned a review of the Construction Lien Act. The OGMA has approached the commission to present the concerns of our industry to the review panel. In addition, we have invested $10,000 with an organization of construction trade associations called Prompt Payment Ontario, which was formed for the sole purpose of ensuring the interests of our industry and other trades are heard throughout the review process. The outcome of this review could be the most important piece of legislation in decades and could make a huge difference in your ability to be paid for work. For more information, please read Frank Fulton’s column in the June issue of Glass Canada and get involved. We’ll only get one shot at this and your input could make the difference.

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to members who have recently joined the OGMA: Abaco Glass, Gridline Design Drafting, Panda Windows and Doors/Façade Plus and Samuel Specialty Metals Ontario. Please extend them a greeting at an upcoming event.

Race Night took place on June 24 and was a resounding success. Everybody had an outstanding time in the posh surroundings of the Munning Room at the Woodbine Racetrack. Some even made enough money to take a day off.

OGMA Fall Golf is just around the corner on Thursday, Sept. 17. For the first time, we’re going to be playing the New Course at the Hidden Lake Golf Club; one of the latest additions to the ClubLink stable of courses. Our Spring Golf event was sold out and we were forced to turn people away so make sure to book early when you get the flyer.
