18. (13) Any issue for arbitration involving the Inuvialuit and Industry or the Inuvialuit and Canada shall be referred to a panel of five (5) members of the Arbitration Board, two (2) of whom shall be designated by each of the interested parties, and the Chairman or Vice-Chairman, as designated by the Chairman. If one of the interested parties is Canada, one of its panel members shall be designated by the Territorial Government in whose jurisdiction the matter arose. The representation of the Government of Yukon Territory for matters north of the watershed and of the Government of the Northwest Territories for matters in the Western Arctic Region shall increase as their respective jurisdictions increase and shall form a majority of Canada's members for matters exclusively within their respective jurisdictions. The membership of the Arbitration Board may be increased from time to time at the discretion of Canada, but the same proportion of representation for Canada and the Inuvialuit shall be maintained.

As amended by P.C. 1987-26, January 15, 1987

18. (14) If the issue for arbitration involves the Inuvialuit, Industry and Canada as interested parties, the panel shall consist of seven (7) members with each party designating two (2) members and the Chairman or Vice-Chairman, as designated by the Chairman, shall sit as the seventh member. Subsection (13) applies to the members designated by Canada.

As amended by P.C. 1987-26, January 15, 1987

18. (15) Each panel shall have all the powers and authority of the full Arbitration Board. Where any party fails to designate members for a panel, the panel may proceed without those members as if it were a full panel. The Chairman or Vice-Chairman, as the case may be, shall have a vote only in the case of a deadlock.
