Arbitrations of both domestic and international commercial disputes are frequently conducted in Canada. The development of Canada’s reputation in international arbitrations arises from its significant talent pool of arbitration counsel and other advantages as a venue for arbitration, including the favourable attitude of Canadian Courts, large selection of qualified arbitrators, and its status as an advanced common law jurisdiction. In 2006, Canada hosted two major conferences on international arbitration: the 17th Congress of the International Counsel for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) and the 72nd Biennial Conference of the International Law Association.
