Getting on the Mediator Roster

Getting on the Mediator Roster

Mediators on the roster are required to have:

  • Subscribed to a code of ethics or conduct of a relevant professional association or society;
  • Completed the Mediation Certificate course of the ADR Institute of Alberta, and have a working knowledge of interest-based negotiation;
  • Documented mediation ability;
  • Documented knowledge of the Municipal Government Act; and
  • Three references.

Provisions will be made to grandfather individuals, on a case-by-case basis, who, by their past history within Alberta, have demonstrated an ability to assist local governments in resolving disputes.

The Advisory Committee, which consists of individuals representing the user groups, the service providers, and Alberta Municipal Affairs, evaluates applications to ensure mediators meet the above criteria. If selected, the mediator must submit an electronic copy of their resume which will be placed on the electronic roster.

Roster mediators are expected to serve as mentors to mentorees and will not receive extra remuneration for that service.

The Mediator Roster application process is presently CLOSED.
