  1. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution

Governing Law

This Agreement will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the province of Québec and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law.

Dispute Resolution

Mediation: Any disagreement or dispute relating to this Agreement or arising from its interpretation or application will be submitted to mediation in accordance with articles 605 to 619 of the Code of Civil Procedure (CQLR c C-25.01) in effect in the Canadian province of Québec at the time of such disagreement or dispute (the “CCP”). To this effect, the parties hereto agree to participate in at least one mediation meeting by delegating a person with decision-making authority; the mediator will be chosen by the parties.

Arbitration: If no agreement is reached within 60 days of the appointment of the mediator, the dispute will be finally settled by arbitration in accordance with articles 620 to 655 of the CCP and to the exclusion of the courts. The parties may at any time agree to a longer period before submitting the dispute to arbitration. Unless the parties agree otherwise in a subsequent arbitration agreement, the arbitration will be conducted under the aegis of a sole arbitrator. The arbitration award will be final, binding and without appeal and will be conclusive upon the parties.

Separate Agreement: The parties acknowledge and agree that this clause is an arbitration agreement within the meaning of article 2638 of the Civil Code of Québec (CQLR c CCQ-1991) and, as such, is considered to be an agreement separate from the other clauses of the Agreement and where the arbitrator finds the Agreement to be null, the arbitration agreement is not for that reason rendered null.
