It is the responsibility of all bidders to ensure they have signed the Mandatory Site Visit Attendance form prior to leaving the site.  Proposals submitted by bidders who have not attended the site visit or failed to sign the Attendance Form will be deemed non-responsive.

Tender packages are not available for distribution on the actual day of tender closing.

The plans and specifications are available for viewing at the offices of the Construction Associations in Hull, Quebec, Ottawa, Toronto, Mississauga, Ontario.
