Guidelines for Med-Arbitrators

Mediate BC in consultation with the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute have developed Med-Arb: Guidelines and Recommended Standards of Conduct. This document reflects the experience of the joint working group, their review of published materials from various jurisdictions, and the feedback of their peers.

It is recognized that while not all mediators or arbitrators are prepared to recommend or participate in the med-arb process, it remains an option for those who wish to consider it. It is also recognized that these guidelines and recommended standards may not be appropriate in the context of labour relation matters.
