The Government of Canada recently launched a new website and TV commercial highlighting the risks of hiring contractors on a cash basis.
Accompanying the video is a new website, http://hiringacontractor.com/, stressing the importance of having a written contract and hiring reputable contractors. The website is filled with useful resources for Canadians looking to build a new home or start a renovation project. Some helpful download files that are available include:
- Get it in Writing! Brochure
Contains a concise overview of important information found on http://hiringacontractor.com/.
- Project checklist
A handy reference to remind yourself about important milestones.
- Contractor Interview Worksheet
Helps ensure that you ask the important questions when interviewing a contractor.
- Customer Reference Worksheet
Contains questions you should ask to get the most out of contractor references.
