Arbitration Ontario Rules

However, parties may sometimes be better off seeking interim measures from courts rather than arbitral tribunals, because unlike arbitrators, courts may make certain orders binding on third parties (e.B Marevainjunctions). In addition, it may be more practical to bring the matter before the courts if the case is urgent and an ad hoc arbitral tribunal is still being established without recourse to a set of rules of an arbitration institution that expressly provide for a procedure and timetable for the request and grant of urgent interim measures.61 (2) If the arbitration agreement forms part of another agreement, for the purposes of a court decision, it is treated as an independent agreement which may exist even if the main agreement is held to be invalid. 1991, c. 17, p. 17 (2). (4) Despite its annulment by section 58, the Arbitration Act, as it read on December 31, 1991, continues to apply to arbitration proceedings commenced on or before that date. 1991, c. 17, p. 2 (4). 15 (1) The court may dismiss an arbitrator at the request of a party under section 13(6) (challenge) or at the request of a party if the arbitrator is unable to perform his or her duties, commits a corrupt or fraudulent act, unreasonably delays the conduct of the arbitration or fails to perform it in accordance with section 19 (Equality and Fairness). 1991, c. 17, p. 15 (1).

36 If the parties settle the dispute by arbitration, the arbitral tribunal shall terminate the arbitration and, at the request of one of the parties, may register the settlement in the form of an arbitral award. 1991, c. 17, p. 36. (4) Arbitration may be conducted within the meaning of Article 44 (corrections) or Article 45 (5) (complaint), 46 (7), 46 para. 8 (annulment of the award) or 54 (3) (costs). 1991, c. 17, p. 43 (4). (5) An arbitration agreement may be revoked only in accordance with the general rules of contract law. 1991, c.

17, p. 5 (5). (2) The application shall be addressed to the person against whom enforcement is to be obtained in accordance with the rules of the court and shall be supported by the original of the award or a certified copy. 1991, c. 17, p. 50 (2). 1. A party to an arbitration agreement shall notify the other parties to appoint or participate in an arbitrator under the agreement.

(4) At the request of all parties to more than one arbitration, the tribunal may make an order on fair terms To determine whether there are reasonable doubts as to the impartiality or independence of the arbitrator, the courts of Ontario have recently begun to refer to the IBA`s 2014 Conflict of Interest Guidelines as an authoritative source.40 The Guidelines ask whether a third party, conclude, knowing the relevant facts and circumstances, that the arbitrator may be influenced by factors other than the merits of the case. The British Columbia Act was amended in 2018 to provide that reasonable doubts about the independence or impartiality of the arbitrator exist only if there is a real risk of bias on the part of the arbitrator in the conduct of the arbitration. This is a higher threshold than the traditional common law test for bias, which asks whether there is a reasonable apprehension of bias.41(5) A party who has objected to the arbitral tribunal exceeding its powers must raise the objection as soon as the matter allegedly outside the jurisdiction of the arbitral tribunal is raised in the course of arbitration. 1991, c. 17, p. 17 (5). (b) the award is not a family arbitral award and has no legal effect. 2006, c. 1, at p. 1 (2).

(b) the International Commercial Arbitration Act applies to arbitration. 1991, c. 17, p. 2 (1). 1. Are there any questions regarding the jurisdiction, appointment or qualification of the arbitral tribunal?2. To what extent and under what procedure does the disclosure and presentation of facts and documents or investigations with a view to their determination take place?3. Is there a need for time for disclosure issues to be heard prior to the hearing?4. Can arbitration be conducted only in writing? If an oral hearing is required, how long does it take? Where does the hearing take place?5. Should witnesses be identified and testified before trial?6. Should the parties jointly prepare pleadings, documents, judicial authorities or other pleadings for use in arbitration?7.

What should be the procedure and the expected duration of the hearing?8. Is an expert opinion required? Are special rules required?9. Is a copy of the evidence desirable at the hearing?10. Are interpreters needed?11. Should there be a timetable for the service of written arguments if necessary?12. Is there an agreement on the form of the prize?13. Is arbitration a final selection of bids?14. Does the arbitrator have to provide a justification?15. Will there be a limit to the time limit for serving the award or concluding the arbitration? The decisions in Cargill and Clayton are consistent with the long-standing approach of Canadian courts, which is based on the premise that “an international arbitral tribunal has acted within its powers” and that judicial interference should be limited to exceptional cases.122 As with international arbitral awards in general, Canadian courts are despicable; interfere in the arbitral awards of investment treaties. and the arbitral award will be respected, provided that the arbitration has followed proper procedures and held a fair hearing.123 For the sake of simplicity, this chapter will deal with the law governing international arbitration in Ontario and British Columbia.

To the extent that arbitration is contemplated in other provinces or under federal law, the relevant legislation should be consulted. (7) As long as a claim is pending, the arbitral tribunal, including the contested arbitrator, may continue the arbitration proceedings and make an arbitral award, unless the tribunal decides otherwise. 1991, c. 17, p. 13 (7). 57 Articles 127 to 130 of the Law on courts of justice, with the necessary amendments, apply to arbitration. 1991, c. 17, p. 57. 22(1) The arbitral tribunal shall determine the time, date and place of arbitration taking into account the relevance of the parties and the other circumstances of the case. 1991, c. 17, p.

22 (1). The rules of international arbitration apply only to “commercial” arbitration.10 In the context of a “commercial” activity, the arbitration agreement may be as narrow or broad as the parties wish. The broadest arbitration agreement may provide that all disputes between the parties shall be resolved by arbitration. Most often, however, arbitration applies to disputes arising from the particular agreement in which the arbitration agreement is contained. Alternatively, the parties may agree to arbitrate only certain disputes – for example, purchase price adjustment disputes arising from a purchase and sale agreement. so much so that it cannot be presumed that the parties consented to it by simply agreeing to submit their disputes to an arbitrator. [13] For the same reason, an ambiguous arbitration agreement cannot provide “the necessary `contractual basis` for binding class arbitration.” [14] 2.1 (1) Family arbitration, family arbitration and family arbitration are subject to this Act and the Family Law Act. 2006, c. 1, at p.

1 (2). (b) the arbitral tribunal terminates the arbitration proceedings in accordance with paragraph 2( 3), article 27, paragraph 1 (failure to comment by the claimant) or article 27, paragraph 4 (default); or (5) This Section does not apply if the arbitration agreement provides that the arbitration shall be conducted only by a designated arbitrator. 1991, c. 17, p. 16 (5). 29(1) A party may notify a person of a notice issued by the arbitral tribunal requesting the person to participate and testify in the arbitration proceedings at the time and place specified in the notice. 1991, c. 17, p. 29 (1).

Applications for setting aside an arbitral award shall be made within three months of receipt of the award to the courts of the province in which the arbitral award is located.75 The tribunal may, upon application for setting aside an arbitral award, if necessary and at the request of a party, stay the proceedings for setting aside the award for a period of time in order to give the arbitral tribunal the opportunity to: resume arbitration or any other action that the arbitral tribunal believes will eliminate the grounds for setting aside the award.76 The new Arbitration Rules of the Canadian Institute for Alternative Dispute Resolution came into force on December 1, 2014. These rules establish clear, modern and reasonable procedures under which effective arbitration can be conducted. In general, a fee or down payment must be paid when a copy of the notice of arbitration and response is sent to the arbitrator. 3. The award shall relate to a dispute which does not cover the arbitration agreement or which contains a decision in a case which does not fall within the scope of the convention. The parties may adopt specific arbitration rules of an arbitration institution or establish their own ad hoc rules of procedure. Canada has a strong tradition of national ad hoc arbitration, as until recently there was no truly national arbitration institution. The Canadian Institute for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADRIC), based in Toronto, has adopted the National Internal Dispute Arbitration Rules and administers arbitration under these Rules. The ICC is also active in Canada, while the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre (“BCICAC”) is often used for arbitration in Vancouver. .
