Reporting to the Ministry of the Attorney General

The regulation under the Arbitration Act, 1991 requires the arbitrator to report twice a year on all family arbitrations he or she has conducted.

Reports are required only on final awards, not on interim awards.

Reports of arbitrations completed between April 1 and September 30 in any year must be submitted to the Ministry by November 30th of that year; those completed between October 1 and March 31 of the following year are due by May 31 of that year.

Here is the form that the arbitrator needs to complete.

(The form does not ask for the names of the parties to the arbitration.)
