Commercial arbitration in Canada has many unique features that are often overlooked in programs that focus more heavily on international arbitration and arbitration institutions. The predominantly ad hoc nature of Canadian arbitration creates many opportunities for flexible and creative approaches to arbitration procedure. However, lawyers and arbitrators must be familiar with the available choices, tradeoffs and limitations in order to meet the expectation that arbitration will in fact provide more efficient and cost effective processes.
Held in partnership with the ADR Institute of Canada, this full day program aims to facilitate the development of 21st century commercial and civil dispute resolution tools, at domestic, regional and international levels. The GPC is a unique series of thought leadership events taking place in cities around the globe, with the aim to shape the future of dispute resolution and access to justice around the world. These conferences will provoke debate on existing tools and techniques, stimulate new ideas and generate actionable data on what corporate and individual dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally. The results of this global project will have far reaching impact on policy and on new trade agreements. This is your opportunity to have a voice in how policies are developed and to play a role in shaping the future of alternative dispute resolution. To learn more, watch this video.
Separate registration required for the GPC.
