Private Appeals Overview

ADR Chambers offers a final, private appeals service for parties who agree to have a Private Appeal from a trial judgment or an arbitral award. The Private Appeal Panel can be one or three ADR Chambers arbitrators.

Parties may agree that, rather than proceed to an appeal before an Appellate Court of a province, they will instead appeal to one or three arbitrators from ADR Chambers.

A Private Appeal does not preserve or suspend the time period for filing a formal appeal pursuant to Civil Procedure Rules. Once the parties agree to use the ADR Chambers’ Private Appeal services, there is no recourse to the Courts thereafter.

The ADR Chambers Private Appeal service is also available for appeals from an arbitral award where the parties agree that there is a right of appeal from the Arbital Award to an ADR Chambers Private Appeal panel.
