General Secretariat

The General Secretariat manages and administers arbitration proceedings, and it also examines the arbitration awards. Additionally, the General Secretariat prepares the lists of prospective arbitrators to be submitted to the Arbitrator Appointment Committee.

The General Secretariat is made up of three teams of legal and administrative staff, and it is headed by the Secretary General. In addition, the Secretary General is assisted by its Support Committee, which is made up of three Deputy Secretaries.

The Secretary General is appointed by the Council at the Chairperson’s request for a five-year term. The Center’s current Secretary General is Ms. Mélanie Riofrio Piché.

During their term, the Secretary General, the Deputy Secretaries and any other members of the General Secretariat do not act as arbitrators in any MIAC-administered arbitration cases and are not appointed as arbitrators where MIAC acts in the capacity of Nominating Authority.
