Small Claims Mediators - An Overview
The small claims cases referred to the Program are mediated by a pool of Small Claims Mediators (SCMs). They are highly trained, professional mediators with background in various fields. They are also on Mediate BC's Civil Roster.
Working under contract with the Program, the SCMs are expected to uphold the CMP's Standards of Conduct and deliver excellent interest-based mediation services to the parties. The Program also oversees the professional development of the SCMs.
A case may be mediated by one mediator or a team of two or three mediators. Note that in order to ensure the neutrality of the process, we don't reveal the name of the mediators to the parties prior to the mediation session.
