Mediator Referral Service

Trying to resolve a dispute without going to court?

Mediation might help.

winwinMediation is a process that allows people in conflict to discuss the situation in a private, confidential setting. People with problems, conflicts or disagreements can talk with each other and make decisions about their situation in a supportive environment.  Mediation can help deal with a broad range of issues, including neighbour, workplace, consumer, commercial, business, non-profits, and family disputes. Mediation can help people resolve their problems and settle their disputes without going to court.
