Last Updated: April 6 2017

What you need to know about Ontario's New International Commercial Arbitration Act

On March 22, 2017, a new international commercial arbitration act came into force in Ontario with immediate effect, repealing the previous international commercial arbitration act. Under the new act there are changes to how an arbitration agreement can be concluded and new provisions regarding limitation periods, interim measures, and the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.

Join us on April 19th at 12:00 p.m. to find out what practical things you need to know about the new act when drafting agreements that provide for international arbitration and when acting as counsel in international arbitration proceedings.
