Lisa Peters, QC, a partner out of our Kelowna office, will be delivering her annual update on contract law developments relevant to commercial practice. This year's topics include:

  • No consideration required for contract variations! The impact of Rosa v. Tocas. 

  • The modified "strong cause test" for enforceability of forum selection clauses in consumer contracts articulated in Douez v. Facebook Inc. - how has it been applied?

  • Tercon Contractors Ltd. v. British Columbia (Transportation and Highways) and the test for assessing exclusion and limitation of liability clauses revisited. 

  • Frustration of contract - a refresher. 

  • Excluding the statutory warranties under the International Sale of Goods Act.

  • This year's commentary on boilerplate: contractual references to legislative provisions.
