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: Since March 2020, the SDRCC has been conducting all of its operations remotely. Its office was moved on December 1, 2023 and, while its direct and toll-free phone numbers are the same, the fax lines are no longer in service. Email remains the most efficient way to contact the employees. Having become experts in the conduct of virtual proceedings, we are committed to the same quality of services as our clients have been used to since 2004.
