Mediation Information Form


Please take a few moments to complete this private and confidential information form. It is the first step of the confidential mediation process.  The process can only begin when we have received both parties’ information forms.

Once we have received both parties’ information forms, the mediator who is assigned to your case will contact you individually to set up your confidential intake meetings. These meetings are free of charge. During the intake meetings, the mediator will assess if your case is suitable for mediation. Some cases may not be appropriate for mediation.

If you currently have a court date and/or have a court file number, on-site mediation will be provided to you free of charge for matters that can be addressed in two hours or less.  If you do not have a court date and/or have a court file number, The Ministry of Attorney General subsidizes family mediation fees for off-site mediation. These fees are charged based on each person’s income. Click here for the fees schedule.

We encourage all clients to obtain legal advice before, during and after all mediations.
