The legal review of the Construction Lien Act is now well underway and an information package has been completed by the legal review group for distribution. 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. We’ll only get one shot at this and your input could make the difference. The OGMA has joined Prompt Payment Ontario, a lobby group formed to make sure opinions from the Ontario construction industry are heard in this process. As an OGMA member, you are invited to respond to PPO’s online survey to make sure the glazing industry’s voice is included. We strongly urge you to visit ipsosresearch.com/contractorpaymentsurvey and take 20 minutes to answer the questions.
The OGMA Fall Seminar Will take place on Oct. 29 at 11:30 at the Richmond Hill Golf Club. Our sponsor and presenter will be ICD who will be educating attendees on the use, benefits, and limitations of opaci-coat spandrel coatings.

OGMA fall golf was held Sept. 17 at the New Course at Hidden Lake Golf Club, one of the latest additions to the ClubLink stable of courses. About 100 members and guests had an outstanding day of golf followed by an outstanding dinner. We proudly made a donation of $2,000 to the Southlake Regional Health Centre for the purpose of purchasing equipment for cancer patients.
After a year of preparation, the OGMA/WSPS safety manual is now ready for use by the metal and glass industry. The manual was created by qualified health and safety professionals and is a timesaving tool enabling glass shops to establish their own company program. Not only will this support a company’s efforts to eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses, it will also lower costs and time related to WSIB claims. Additionally, the health and safety manual provides proof of compliance with the new OHSA Regulation 297/13.
