Welcome to the website of the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC), Canada's premier source for tools and information to help prevent and resolve disputes at the highest levels of the Canadian sport system.


NOTICE: In light of the concerns around the prevalence of COVID-19 in the Montreal area and to reduce the need for its employees to take public transit to commute to work everyday, the SDRCC has directed all employees to work remotely. Until further notice, even if the main phone line will still be operational during normal business hours, email will be the most efficient way to contact them. Having become experts in the conduct of virtual proceedings, we are committed during this period to offering the same level of services as usual.
