CPR Signs Agreement with Canada's Arbitration Place for Collaboration

Agreement follows recent formation of CPR's Canada Advisory Board

New York – The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), a global non-profit organization that advances dispute prevention and resolution practices and provides high quality solutions, announced that CPR and Arbitration Place have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that sets a cooperation framework between the two organizations.  

Arbitration Place is Canada’s premier venue for arbitrations, mediation or out-of-court examinations. The agreement notably provides that the two organizations will collaborate on the organization and promotion of future arbitration-related conferences and other events in Canada and the rest of the world.  Arbitration Place will provide its facilities and services to CPR for the organization of CPR events in Toronto and Ottawa.  

In addition, CPR will recommend Arbitration Place as a suitable hearing venue for CPR arbitrations seated in Toronto or Ottawa and for arbitrations seated elsewhere for which Toronto or Ottawa would be a suitable hearing venue.  

Finally, CPR’s rules and other materials will be available at Arbitration Place’s facilities in Toronto and Ottawa. 

“CPR is pleased to be collaborating with this leading institution to promote arbitration,” said Noah Hanft, President and CEO of CPR. “This agreement speeds the momentum of CPR’s activities in Canada, following the recent announcement of our Canada Advisory Board, and comes soon after CPR held its second highly successful annual Canada Regional Meeting at Arbitration Place in Toronto in September 2017, focusing on building enduring and successful joint ventures.”
