Ismaili Conciliation and Arbitration Board for Canada

Ismaili Conciliation and Arbitration Board for Canada

Throughout history, the Ismaili Community has maintained a tradition of resolving disputes and differences through an entirely voluntary process of mediation, conciliation and arbitration.

The ethic of fair mediation is frequently expounded in the Holy Qu’ran which says: “He who shall mediate between people for a good purpose shall be the gainer by it. But he who shall mediate with an evil mediation shall reap the fruit of it. And Allah keepeth watch over everything.” (4.85)

On December 13, 1986, the Constitution of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims, ordained by His Highness Prince Aga Khan, established a dispute resolution system whereby Conciliation and Arbitration Boards (CAB) would operate at the regional, national and international levels. Currently, the CAB system operates in 18 jurisdictions around the world.

In Canada, there is a National Board (NCAB) and five Regional Boards (RCAB) (British Columbia, Edmonton, Prairies, Ontario and Quebec and the Maritime Provinces).
