Administrative Adjudicative Decisions: Statutory Review Mechanisms Tribunal Inventory


In 2010, the Alberta Law Reform Institute (ALRI) considered whether to undertake a project regarding the diversity of statutory review mechanisms available in Alberta for reviewing or appealing adjudicative decisions made by administrative tribunals.

Powers and Procedures for Administrative Tribunals in Alberta, Final Report 79


Existing legislation that governs the procedures of adjudicative tribunals in Alberta – the Alberta Administrative Procedures Act – is seriously deficient. It has not kept up to date with new case law, nor does it even apply to a majority of Alberta’s adjudicative tribunals. The ALRI suggests replacing this legislation with the Administrative Powers and Procedures Act. It would apply to all tribunals and because of the diverse range of tribunal functions and resources, include “opt-in” legislation. This […]

Proposals for a New Alberta Arbitration Act, Final Report 51


This report considers the Arbitration Act, RSA 1980, c A-43, as it was current to the publication of the report. The report considers two principal difficulties users had with the Act: the fact that it left many practical problems unsolved; and the “unduly broad” scope for discretionary intervention by the courts, which would frustrate the desire of many arbitrating parties to avoid litigation. The report presents a draft Act, patterned on the UNCITRAL Model Law […]
