What is Mediation

Mediation is an assisted negotiation process. The mediator, a neutral third party, facilitates discussions between parties to help them uncover their true interests and needs from their declared positions. The mediator uses these interests to help them derive with mutually acceptable decisions. Mediators neither judge nor impose decisions.

For mediation to take place, all parties must agree to mediate their dispute. Things said at mediation are confidential and cannot be used in court, but settlement agreements that have been recorded and undersigned by all parties are legally binding.

EMCC promotes relational wellness by repairing, preserving, and improving relationships through our mediation and counselling work. Through these services, we want to enable the people we serve to move forward in their lives stronger, more resilient and with healthier relationships.

Mediation has proven to be a successful alternative to resolving the dispute in court.

The benefits of mediation include:
  • Clarifies communication and enhances cooperation
  • Facilitates mutually acceptable and beneficial agreements
  • Preserves relationships
  • Provides cost-effective solutions
