Effective June 27, 2002, disputes involving alleged bad faith registration of .ca domain names can be resolved by arbitration pursuant to the Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Policy”) mandated by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (“CIRA”). The Policy is modelled on the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “UDRP”) applicable to .com, .org, .net and other domain names, but contains certain provisions that are distinctly Canadian and which are designed to improve upon the UDRP in light of its interpretation and practical application.
