ADR Atlantic Institute
The Atlantic Region Chapter of the ADR Institute of Canada, ADRAI is a non-profit association for mediators and arbitrators. Its function is to provide the public with the means to resolve disputes of all kinds through mediation, arbitration and other voluntary methods, and to act as a national centre of information, education and research on dispute resolution.
ADRAI seeks to assist the public in finding ADR professionals, providing an online directory of mediators and arbitrators with various levels of experience and qualifications - most neutrals listed are non-lawyers, but many have expertise in family disputes. ADRAI has certification procedures, C.Med and C.Arb, which ensures competency levels for accredited members. The Institute also provides a regulatory infrastructure that includes a Code of Ethics and a Code of Conduct for Mediators that set high standards of practice, as well as providing a complaint and discipline process for any dissatisfied user of ADR services.
