The Alberta Law Reform Institute has released a Report for Discussion 24: Arbitration Act: Stay and Appeal Issues
"Many legal disputes are arbitrated outside the court system using the Alberta Arbitration Act.
These arbitrated cases can include commercial, consumer, family and
community issues. The Alberta Law Reform Institute has just released a
Report for Discussion seeking public input on some procedural issues
which affect the ideal functioning of the arbitration system. The Report
explores difficulties arising out of simultaneous court proceedings
which must be suspended or stayed in whole or in part so the arbitration
can proceed, appeals to the Court of Queen’s Bench and the role of
arbitration appeals generally."
For many of these issues, the report outlines the practice in other Canadian jurisdictions as a matter of comparison.
