New Perspectives on Good Faith in Contractual NegotiationMar 23, 2023- 12:35 pm — 1:45 pm Davis Hall, Room 104 and Virtually
The advent of the duty of honest performance in Canadian contract law has important implications for the context in which many commercial transactions get negotiated. It means that good faith obligations will now arise during commercial negotiations in which early-stage agreements are entered into. Early-stage agreements are very often part of a process in which a negotiation relationship emerges that is not pre-contractual but is instead structured in part through contracts. They create a context in which questions about good faith behaviour become highly relevant.
