1. Canada has its own domain name dispute resolution provider, not just for our own .ca names, but for most other domains available? Vancouver’s CIIDRC was approved by ICANN over a year ago, becoming the 6th global provider for domain name disputes other than country specific domains. 

Everyone in business has a designated domain name. Considering the immense value in a brand, protection of the name from use by bad actors is a priority. 

CIIDRC’s online platform provides for the resolution of domain name disputes under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and the CIRA Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (CDRP). Have a look.

CIIDRC’s leading-edge, online platform is available 24/7 to anyone wishing to research the process, make or respond to a complaint, or see past decisions. The site provides detailed information about our roster of highly experienced arbitrators and is aiming to be the provider of choice for Canadian and international disputants.
