The Canadian Motor Vehicle Arbitration Plan requires additional arbitrators for its roster willing to serve in Calgary. The program is looking for candidates in the Calgary area in particular. Candidates from other areas in Alberta will also be considered. Three new arbitrators will be added to the roster during 2023.
Training will be conducted through a web-based program that includes self- study along with access to program staff and the Arbitration Specialist as required throughout the program. The training is offered at no cost to the applicant.
It is estimated that the training will take about 20+ hours to complete. Candidates will be expected to complete all the training modules and to also write two training awards as part of the course.
If you are interested in being considered by CAMVAP as an applicant for its training and addition to its roster of arbitrators, please:
- Review the CAMVAP website to familiarize yourself with the program.
- For access to the application form, information on the fees paid to CAMVAP Arbitrators for their services, and the detailed arbitrator search standards go to https://camvap.ca/Arbitrator-Application/
CAMVAP arbitrations usually take 2 to 3 hours to complete at the hearing plus at least the same amount of time award writing time. The hearings can be held anywhere in the Province. Through its Provincial Administrator, CAMVAP is responsible for setting up the hearing location and assigning arbitrators to the hearing. The program uses a roster system and assigns arbitrators to cases in sequential order amongst the arbitrators that service the specific area where the arbitration is held and those arbitrators that are willing to travel if CAMVAP does not have a more locally based arbitrator available.
It is essential that new arbitrators are willing to travel within their province to conduct arbitrations.
The key search standards for new arbitrators are: completion of at least one formal arbitration training program; a well-developed understanding of legislation governing arbitrations; experience in conducting arbitrations, adjudications or fact finding which from this experience the arbitrator can provide CAMVAP with two previously written awards (identifying information may be removed); and, an interest in automobiles that has been developed through work, interest, experience, training or employment.
Applications must be sent using the form on the website. The form allows for the information to be filled in directly. The completed application package must include the application form, your resume, any proof of training that you can provide and two previously completed arbitration.
The initial round of applications will be reviewed and considered by April 21, 2023 with training scheduled to commence by May 1, 2023. Candidates will be added to the roster as a probationary arbitrator within three weeks from completion of the training.
Applications will first be reviewed by CAMVAP staff and then by the Independent CAMVAP Arbitration Trainer. Receipt of all applications will be acknowledged. Successful applicants will be contacted directly as the training program is about to commence.
The CAMVAP Program Coordinator can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 416- 490-0615 should you have any questions.
