What is the Mediation Process?

  • Mediation is a very flexible process and the mediator will work with the parties to design a process that works best for the type of issues and the needs of the parties.
  • In general, mediation usually involves in person meetings facilitated by the mediator.
  • The mediator will sometimes meet with the parties and their representatives separately, particularly as part of the preparation process.
  • The mediator may suggest the use of technology such as telephone, e-mail or web-conferencing, to support the mediation process.
  • Once the parties reach an agreement, the mediator will usually assist the parties to document their proposals for agreement.
  • The process for family mediation is described in more detailĀ here.

About pacificpolicies

Mediation is the most satisfying work I've ever done. Helping people to find mutually acceptable resolutions to problems, even in longstanding and complex disputes, is an honour that I highly value and a responsibility that I take very seriously. I have a sliding scale fee schedule to ensure low income people and not-for profit organisations can access alternative dispute resolution and avoid costly court actions. I'm a member of the Canadian Bar Association, the ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC), the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute (BCAMI) and registered on the Mediate BC Civil Mediators Roster: http://www.mediatebc.com/Find-a-Mediator/Mediator-Profile.aspx?RosterTypeId=1&MediatorId=402
