Family Mediation Canada has been certifying highly skilled mediators across Canada since 1984.
It is the only national certification standard for Family Mediators and has members from all across Canada in both private practice and government-funded mediation positions.
The national body is recognized as the gold standard of mediation certification, requiring the mediators who certify with them to undertake hours of training in the legal, emotional and interpersonal dynamics of families undergoing separation and divorce.
The certification provides a level of security to the public that the mediator assisting them has the knowledge and practical experience to make their unique mediation a productive experience.
We also have General Members who are not yet certified or have a different practice and have chosen to not become certified.
