CCDC 2 (2020), CCDC 3 (1998), CCDC 4 (2011), CCDC 5B (2010), CCDC 14 (2013), CCDC 17 (2010) and CCDC 18 (2001) Supplementary General Conditions for Use in Alberta
Supplementary General Conditions for the CCDC suite of contracts are required to align with lien legislation unique to each province.

CCDC has been modifying language as each contract in their suite of contracts is updated, which in turn simplifies the wording required in the ACA SGC.

The SGC for CCDC 2-2020 can be found here.

The SGC for CCDC 14-2013 can be found here and will require further modification once CCDC 14 is updated sometime in the next several years.

CCDC 30 does not require a SGC because the payment and holdback provisions are much less prescriptive than in the other CCDC contracts and there doesn’t appear to be any conflicts with Alberta’s lien legislation.

CCDC will be updating several of the remaining contracts in 2023 and ACA will release SGCs for each of these updated CCDC contracts in 2023.
