Most people don’t want to go through a long, costly litigation process.
What they really want is to be heard and have a fair settlement.
Ontario Dispute Resolution Services provides mediation and other dispute resolution services to bring parties to the table before court. This can result in saving both time and money for the parties.
Services are offered through face-to-face meetings and online through video and telephone meetings.
Mediation is an option in most disputes. Even when the parties don’t have an amicable relationship, a neutral third party (the mediator) can help to identify common ground and help the parties come to an agreement or settlement. It is a voluntary process. But it is also confidential – meaning that if the parties can’t come to an agreement, all conversations and materials are kept between the parties and the mediator.
When mediation doesn’t result in a settlement, or simply is not the best ADR option, ODRS provides other non-court options for consideration.
