  16. Finning may terminate this Agreement for any reason on thirty (30) days’ notice. Finning may terminate this Agreement immediately if any of the following apply: i) the Supplier is notified by Finning of breach or suspected breach of this Agreement and fails, at its sole expense, to take such steps as Finning may direct, in its sole discretion, within seven (7) days to diligently and expediently remedy that breach, and ii) the Supplier becomes insolvent, takes the benefit of any legislative protection for bankruptcy, or any other circumstance exists which Finning determines, in its sole discretion, indicates that the Supplier lacks the resources to fulfil its obligations under this Agreement.
  17. On termination or expiry of this Agreement, Finning shall provide direction to the Supplier as to which Work is to be stopped. In full satisfaction of any claims the Supplier may have in respect of that termination, Finning shall: i) subject to the terms of this Agreement, pay the Supplier as required by this Agreement for all Work which Finning directs to continue, and ii) for Work which Finning directs should be ceased, Finning shall pay the Supplier for its reasonable and documented costs incurred up to the effective date of expiry or termination within a reasonable period of time upon Finning being provided satisfactory evidence of those costs. The Supplier shall comply with Finning’s direction regarding the delivery of any Work in progress and the Supplier hereby grants Finning a license to access any Supplier facilities for the retrieval of Work in progress at any time during the term of this Agreement and for a reasonable period of time afterwards for the same. In the event that Finning allows, in its sole discretion, the Supplier to continue to provide the Work or a portion thereof after expiry or termination occurs, the terms of this Agreement shall be deemed to continue to apply to that Work, provided however that there shall be no implied extension or renewal and any ongoing Work shall be terminable by Finning immediately on notice.
  18. While the Work is being performed and any other obligation exists under this Agreement, the Supplier shall obtain and maintain, at its own sole cost and expense, either by way of a new policy or by endorsement to an existing policy, the following insurance policies at all times during the performance of the Work (including in respect of any Work performed prior to the Effective Date) until completion of the Work (unless another period is set out herein): i) “Commercial General Liability” insurance, including third party bodily injury, property damage, contractual liability and non-owned automobile liability with a limit not less than $5,000,000 dollars per occurrence, ii) If applicable (as determined by Finning), Professional “Errors and Omissions” insurance in an amount of not less than $2,000,000 dollars per occurrence, iii) If applicable (as determined by Finning), Automobile Liability Insurance covering any and all motor vehicles owned or non-owned, operated or licensed by the Supplier or any of its agents or employees and used to provide the Work with a minimum bodily injury and property damage limit of five million $5,000,000 dollars inclusive, per occurrence, iv) If applicable (as determined by Finning), Cargo Insurance with limits not less than five hundred thousand $500,000 dollars per occurrence for damage to cargo in transit. Should individual shipments have a cargo value in excess of this minimum coverage requirement, the Supplier shall maintain sufficient cargo coverage for the full declared value of any shipment transported for Finning or any of its affiliates.  The amount of cargo coverage declared by a Supplier shall impact what orders a Supplier is eligible to transport, v) If applicable (as determined by Finning), Property or Contractors Equipment insurance to cover physical damage to or the loss of all major tools and equipment, construction office trailers and their contents, unlicensed vehicles and other property for which the Supplier owns or is responsible, throughout the course of the performance of its obligations under this Agreement.
  19. The Supplier shall be solely responsible for the payment of any self-insured amounts or any deductibles. All Supplier policies of insurance shall be considered primary and Finning’s policies shall be non-contributory with respect to any loss. All insurance policies shall contain an obligation of the part of the insurer to notify Finning at least 30 calendar days prior to any material change or cancellation of the policy(ies). Finning, its officers, employees, servants and agents shall be named as additional insureds with respect to the Services and a waiver of subrogation as against Finning shall be in place. Such insurance shall also insure all Subcontractors and anyone employed directly or indirectly by the Supplier or its Subcontractors to perform any part of the Services pursuant to this Agreement.
  20. Time shall be of the essence in the performance of this Agreement. All duties and obligations imposed by this Agreement and all rights and remedies available under this Agreement are cumulative and shall be in addition to and shall not operate in limitation of, any duties, obligations, rights and remedies otherwise imposed or available under this Agreement, at law or in equity. It is the intent of the parties that, except where specifically noted otherwise, all provisions of this Agreement shall survive termination of this Agreement and/or completion of the Work. No failure by Finning to exercise any right under or insist on strict performance of this Agreement shall operate as a waiver. Any waiver by Finning must be in writing and shall be effective only for the specific circumstances contained therein. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Alberta without reference to conflict of laws rules. The parties to this Agreement hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that Province for the settling of any disputes.
