BC Mediator Roster Society

The British Columbia Mediator Roster Society manages a list of qualified civil and family mediators. This list is called the "Civil Roster" and the "Family Roster". The mediators on these Rosters have, at a minimum, completed a basic level of training and experience and have agreed to follow the Society's code of conduct. By defining this basic level, the Society's Civil and Family Rosters provide a measure of protection to the public. At the same time, the Society provides guidance for civil and family mediators about acceptable levels of training and standards for ethical practice. The Society is affiliated with British Columbia's Child Protection Mediation Program Roster, and in this capacity manages information about the mediators on this Roster.
