Family Mediation

Helping families work through dispute with each member in conflict. A problem-solving process to help people resolve family conflict resulting from a relationship breakdown. A mediator assists families to clearly define their issues and reach agreement on those issues in a productive way.

Separation is always a difficult and emotional time. If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on your own, a mediator may be able to help you communicate better with each other and reach an agreement. Mediators are neutral third parties who can help you agree on a variety of issues, including support payments, the division of property, or custody of and access to your children. You should review any agreement you reach during mediation with a lawyer before you sign it.

Did you know? As of March 1, 2021, most family law matters that come to family court will be required to attempt a family dispute resolution process before they will be able to continue with any further court proceedings. We are listed on the minister’s list to conduct these sessions (Section 44.01 of The Queen’s Bench Act, 1998,). Click here to learn more.

Co-Parenting Mediation

Parents and blended families can use this service to help them communicate better and work towards an effective parenting plan. Families with parenting plans that are not working can use this service to find solutions which work better for them. This service can also be used to draft parenting agreements.

Workplace Conflict Resolution

Workplace conflict is a regular occurrence. Many times communication has been lacking and misunderstandings take root. Mediation can help communicate the issues to each party which leads to efficient workplace productivity. Price includes private consultation and joint session of up to 2 hours. .

Victim Offender Mediation

With the assistance of the mediator, the victim and offender begin to resolve the conflict and to construct their own approach to achieving justice in the face of their particular crime. Both are given the opportunity to express their feelings and perceptions of the offence (which often dispels misconceptions they may have had of one another before entering mediation). The meetings conclude with an attempt to reach agreement on steps the offender will take to repair the harm suffered by the victim and in other ways to “make things right”.

Participation by the victim is voluntary. The offender’s participation is usually characterized as voluntary as well, although it should be recognized that offenders may “volunteer” in order to avoid more onerous outcomes that would otherwise be imposed. Unlike binding arbitration, no specific outcome is imposed by the mediator. Instead, the mediator’s role is to facilitate interaction between the victim and offender.
