Nestle Canada Inc. v. The “Viljandi” et al.

In Arbitration/Jurisdiction Clauses in Maritime Law on (Updated )

This was an an application for a stay of proceedings on the basis of a jurisdiction clause contained in a bill of lading. The Court refused the stay on the grounds that the action had been commenced after the Marine Liability Act was proclaimed in force (August 8, 2001) and, therefore, the matter was covered by s. 46(1) of the Marine Liability Act.
