Who We Are

The Canadian International Internet Dispute Resolution Centre (“CIIDRC”, “the Centre”) serves global Internet users by providing trusted and efficient resolution of domain name disputes under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the UDRP) and the CIRA Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the CDRP). 

Through our on-line platform, CIIDRC helps users efficiently submit complaints, file responses, select panelists and view decisions resulting from domain name disputes. Our goal is to provide timely and cost-effective resolution of domain name disputes.

CIIDRC is a division of the Vancouver International Arbitration Centre, formerly known as the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre (“the Centre”). Established in 1986 in Vancouver with the support of the provincial Government of British Columbia and the Government of Canada, the Centre is a non-profit foundation and trusted provider of alternative dispute resolution services.

CIIDRC is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of leading lawyers, academics, a former Attorney General, and prominent business leaders.

Both VanIAC and CIIDRC are led by Barry Penner, Q.C., Managing Director and a former Attorney General of BC, along with an advisory committee established by the Centre’s Board.

Located in the heart of beautiful downtown Vancouver, Canada, CIIDRC is fully-equipped to effectively assist in the timely resolution of domain name disputes.
