You don't have to use these Canadian construction documents committee.....

There is a lot of easier format you could use especially for a smaller jobs.

Great thanks Mike. Just don't want to leave myself open to any liability. Is there a website that has these other forms of contract?

Hello Paul,

We use the CCDC-2 form with slight variations (e.g. 0% interest), and ACA forms. The OCA website has other options, as well:

Most important is to manage expectations between you and your clients and subcontractors, with a very clear change order process that is strictly adhered to. Equally important are contracts with your trades, which is where the ACA forms are helpful.

All the best!
