The next CPR conference in Canada, organized by the CPR Canada Advisory Board in collaboration with the CPR Energy Committee, will take place in Calgary, Alberta.  It will start with a Welcome Reception hosted by Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.  The conference will take place from 8:30-11:30 am on Thrursday, October 17, 2019 at the offices of McCarthy Tétrault LLP. 

The conference will explore an important series of questions relating to the effective use of different ADR mechanisms in the energy sector:  What are the differences between arbitration, mediation and expert determination?  Are some types of disputes in the energy sector best resolved by one of these mechanisms, or does the success of any particular ADR technique depend less on the subject-matter of the dispute and more on the skill and experience of the neutral selected to resolve the dispute?  Should energy companies adopt a systematic approach to handling and resolving disputes?  What techniques work best for multi-stakeholder consensus building?  What are the latest tips on drafting and implementing multi-step and/or split dispute-resolution clauses?
