Structure and Mandate

The B.C. Civil Resolution Tribunal (the “tribunal”) is an independent, quasi-judicial body established under the Civil Resolution Tribunal Act (the “CRTA”). The tribunal provides self-help tools, online dispute resolution, and other collaborative dispute resolution services. As a last resort, disputes are resolved by adjudication, based on written submissions or, occasionally, following an oral hearing. Most of the tribunal’s services are delivered through remote communication methods like email, the internet, telephone, and video. The tribunal has jurisdiction over most strata (condominium) property disputes, small claims disputes $5,000.00 or under, motor vehicle injury disputes $50,000 or under, motor vehicle accident benefit disputes, and some disputes under the Societies Act and the Cooperative Associations Act.

The tribunal is currently made up of the chair, four vice chairs, and full-time and part-time tribunal members. The chair, vice chairs and members are appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council after a competitive, merit-based process. Tribunal operations are supported by tribunal staff.

Strategic Direction

The tribunal’s mandate is to provide “accessible, speedy, economical, informal and flexible” dispute resolution services, which are proportional to the issues in dispute. The tribunal is an expert tribunal, and tribunal members apply their expertise in resolving disputes through adjudication. The CRTA provides that the tribunal’s online dispute resolution services are available to the public generally. For more information, see www.civilresolutionbc.ca.
