Family Mediation Services


Family Mediation Services: Vision and Mission

Vision: An affordable and timely separation and divorce mediation service that promotes harmony and decision making within every family undergoing transition.

Mission: To enhance access to collaborative dispute resolution services, thereby contributing to the culture change in the Family Justice Field by providing quality mediation services for families and couples, to resolve their differences and to promote their peaceful restructuring.

In British Columbia, mediation has been an alternative to the traditional court process of dispute resolution for family disputes, for over 20 years. Mediation can be used for many kinds of family disputes but is most often used when couples separate or divorce.

Our Roster Mediators

Mediators on the Society's  Family Roster mediate a variety of family-related matters, which include reorganization of the family after separation or divorce, parenting, financial support and property matters connected to separation or divorce, family business, family property or finances, family inheritance and estates, responsibility for care of elderly parents, adoption, pre-nuptial issues, and intra-family conflicts.

You can find detailed information about individual mediators on the Family Roster in our searchable Directory of Family Mediators. The requirements for being admitted to the Family Roster and the application process are described in Family Roster Admission.
