PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS IN THE MODERNIZATION OF QUEBEC HEALTH CARE: THE ROLE OF THE LEGAL PRACTITIONER

March 21, 2012, 18h30-20h15 followed by a wine and cheese.

The McGill Journal of Law and Health (MJLH) invites you to its 3rd annual Continuing Legal Education Forum (CLEF) on the role of Public Private Partnerships (P3’s) in the modernization of Quebec’s healthcare system. The goal is to provide legal professionals, healthcare practitioners, and students with a better understanding of the legal aspects underlying Quebec’s P3 model.

In exploring this topic, the CLEF will, as a case study, focus on the Redevelopment Projects of both McGill University Health Center and the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (commonly referred to as the Super-Hospital projects). The CLEF will be moderated by Professor Alana Klein of McGill’s Faculty of Law and will be of a bilingual nature.

Speakers will include:

Andrew Ford – Partner with Frasken-Martinault with an extensive background in negotiating P3’s agreements, both here in Quebec and beyond, will speak from a practicing lawyer’s perspective on the many legal aspects of the P3’s process.

André Dufour – President of Groupe immobilier santé McGill at SNC-Lavalin, will speak on the legal opportunities, challenges, and interests that embody private industry interests in P3’s.

Eric Michaud – Director at Infrastructure Quebec, will situate the historic progression of P3’s in Quebec and elaborate on the role that this ministry plays in establishing an evolving legal framework.
