Who We Are

The Canadian International Internet Dispute Resolution Centre (“CIIDRC”) serves global Internet users by providing smart, trusted and efficient resolution of domain name disputes. 

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

BCICAC is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of leading lawyers, academics, a former Supreme Court Judge, a former Attorney General, and prominent business leaders. It has a “public” mandate; Section 22 of the Arbitration Act of British Columbia states that the rules of BCICAC for domestic arbitrations are the default rules for any arbitral proceedings in British Columbia, unless the parties agree otherwise. 

Both BCICAC 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 BCICAC 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.
