Arbitration is a private system of justice, which is parallel to the ordinary Courts that are run by the state. Arbitration is provided for in the Code of civil procedure (s. 620 and following C.c.p.). The main condition of the arbitration process is that all parties to the dispute must agree to participate. This agreement may be reached after the dispute has arisen, before the arbitrator, or otherwise. It can also be already provided for in a contract which gives rise to the dispute such as insurance contracts, business or building sales contracts, or any other type of contract. This is what we call an arbitration clause.
The advantage of this system of justice is that it is much quicker than the regular Courts run by the state. Often, courts delays can take up more than three (3) years, before obtaining a first court date, without counting postponements as well as all other types of delays such as the deliberation process to obtain judgment. An arbitration can take place within a delay of one month. If both parties share the arbitration fees, there is no incentive to ask for a postponement.
This system does not necessitate any legal procedings, examinations out of court or other paperwork. After an agreement on the conduct of the proceedings, the parties can present themselves to the arbitration session without any other formalities. Furthermore, if the parties share the fees of the arbitrator, without representation by an attorney, there is necessarily a reduction in costs because on top of saving money on the legal proceedings that are necessary for the ordinary courts, the parties can share the fees of the arbitrator between them, which means a reduction of at least half of the costs.
The arbitration process is also a lot more humane. There is no legal proceedings surrounding this process or other irritants presently caused by the present justice system. The arbitration takes place in a neutral location but often in a location less formal than a courtroom. More often than not, the arbitration takes place in a conference room chosen by the arbitrator. This permits a more human exchange between the parties. The arbitrator is chosen and hired by the parties. He must therefore render humane services and respect the litigating parties. Courtesy is required by all parties.
The private character of this system brings the parties to a fair and impartial decision. The sole interests of the parties are taken into consideration. There is no procedural concern. Unless the decision rendered is not executed or ratified by the courts, it is confidential. You won’t make the headlines for the wrong reasons.
Evidently, the arbitration decision is executable. In other words, if a party does not respect the decision, it can be ratified by the Courts. It therefore becomes executable and you can then mandate a bailiff to force the execution. (Statute 646 C.c.p. and Nearctic Nickel mines Inc. vs Canadian Royalties Inc. 2020 QCCA 385).
Arbitration is an alternative method of resolving conflicts like mediation except that the result is guaranteed in this case. You are guaranteed of receiving an arbitration decision at the end of the process.
Since arbitration is a private mode of resolving conflicts, there is no conflict concerning jurisdiction. Arbitration is recognized internationally. Several international treaties recognize arbitration. Most countries have adopted provisions in their legislation, like in Canada, that permit the ratification of the decisions. Since there are no legal procedures, the principle of natural justice is applied. There are no territorial rights that are applied and therefore no conflict in jurisdiction.
