Arbitration Agreement Canada


British Columbia and the Ontario Statutes provide that the court of arbitration has jurisdiction to determine its own jurisdiction, including findings of the existence or validity of the arbitration agreement.14 A decision of the Arbitration Tribunal on its jurisdiction may be challenged in court within 30 days.15 Are there provisions relating to the separation of arbitration agreements? 2. If an application to quash or suspend a sentence has been lodged with a court in paragraph 1, point (a) v), the jurisdiction in which recognition or execution is sought may, if necessary, adjourn its decision and, at the request of the party seeking recognition or execution of the sentence, provide an appropriate guarantee.

Cas.811 (1843-60) All E.R. 1 has decided that an arbitration agreement expressly providing that an arbitration procedure is a precondition for litigation does not in itself supersede the jurisdiction of the court. However, at the request of one of the parties wishing to enforce the agreement, the House of Lords upheld the clause requiring the parties to submit to arbitration.
