Architects are required, in accordance with AIBC Statutes 28.0 and 28.1, to ensure that an executed written contract exists for a client before the start of work. This architecture service contract must be a standard form contract approved by the AIBC Board, or on the basis of a standard contract for services, responsibilities and terms and conditions. For practical information regarding the use of standard form contracts, please contact Maura Gatensby Architect AIBC, Practical Advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.305.2699. Coverage, table of contents, contract form, definitions and terms and conditions are available in PDF format with filled out forms fields. The agreement part of the PDF form is also provided in the form of an MS Word document. However, users are advised NOT to change the text of the contract form. The MS Word version is provided to allow users to expand form fields if necessary. For assistance when ordering label authorization aiBC or CCDC electronic documents and stickers, please send email@example.com or call 604.683.8588. The AIBC Council has approved eight standard form contracts listed below. Please note that the legitimate use of these contracts requires the purchase of authorization stickers for each contracting party. Authorization stickers can be purchased from the AIBC (order form) and THE RAIC (only for RAIC contracts).
The non-use of registration stickers may constitute unfeasmaned behaviour and open an architect and a company to other legal rights. If changes to the contract form, definitions or terms and conditions of a typical RAIC contract are required, this should be done using additional conditions. The addition of additional conditions is an acceptable way to tailor the responsibilities of both parties to the specific conditions of the project. Additional conditions can be described, for example. B, the need for a security clearance or background check to work in certain facilities. Additional conditions should not be used to change the fundamental responsibilities of one of the parties or to transfer the risks to a party that cannot cope with that risk.

This second issue replaced its predecessor, originally published in 2010.
A new practice guideline has also been created. The most practical way to change the contract is to cross the corresponding section and take a note that refers to the additional condition that replaces the barred section.
