A party to a contract may terminate the cntract and then start an arbitration to confirm the validity of the termination. If the arbitral tribunal grants such a declaration, then that party better watch out that it doesn't continue to treat the contract as still continuing. If it does, it may waive the termination, and the arbitration will be for naught. So held the Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench.
Clearly this decision is of considerable importance in construction projects, franchise agreements or in other ongoing contractual relationships.
