Robert Deane, Craig Chiasson and Paige Burnham, all members of BLG’s International Arbitration Group, recently contributed the Canada chapter to The Arbitration Review of the Americas 2023 - A Global Arbitration Review Special Report.
The chapter, titled “Canada: rulings demonstrate judicial deference to arbitration,” covers in detail the many reasons why Canada is consistently recognized as an arbitration-friendly jurisdiction. Points of discussion include:
- History of the implementation of the Model Law in Canada
- Background to the legislative framework for arbitration in Canada’s provinces
- List of arbitration groups and institutions throughout Canada
- Recent Canadian case law
