All mediators and Information & Referral Coordinators (IRC’s) have been approved by the Ministry of the Attorney General of the Government of Ontario, to provide services to the Ministry’s strict standards. For our mediators, and amongst other impressive credentials, this includes having either the designation of Accredited Family Mediator (Acc.F.M.) from the Ontario Association of Family Mediation (OAFM), and/or Certified (Comprehensive) Family Mediator (Cert.CFM) status from Family Mediation Canada, and/or Chartered Mediator (C.Med) from the Alternative Dispute Institute of Ontario (ADRIO) and/or Family Dispute Resolution Professional in Mediation (FDRP Med.) from the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (FDRIO).  Our mediators work in our various locations, and most in more than one.
