Dispute Resolution Secretariat (Tribunal)
The Canadian Sport Dispute Resolution Code ("the Code") outlines the procedural rules under which all disputes submitted to SDRCC must take place. This document is an essential resource for parties, mediators and arbitrators, as well as Dispute Resolution Secretariat staff.
It is highly recommended that parties consult the Code to better understand their rights and obligations before, during and after proceedings. Some of the important aspects of dispute resolution procedures addressed in the Code are: jurisdiction of the SDRCC, confidentiality, timelines, appointment of arbitrators, selection of mediators, settlements and awards, costs, etc.
The 2015 Canadian Sport Dispute Resolution Code (effective January 1, 2015) is available in the related downloads section.
NEW: An annotated version of the Code is now also available in the related downloads section.
