Community mediation training

Community Mediation Ottawa offers a 21-hour/3 day course (Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday) at least once each year. The course emphasizes the co-mediation model endorsed by the Ontario Community Mediation Coalition, and the steps involved in mediating a conflict. It relies heavily on role-playing with coaching provided by our mediators. We hope to offer the training more frequently, as resources permit. There is a reasonable fee for the training. Participation in the program is available by invitation only. If you are interested in benefiting from this training, please contact us.


Monthly Practice Workshops

Community Mediation Ottawa organizes monthly practice workshops. The workshops include role-plays (mock mediations) and skills development exercises. The workshops are for individuals who have completed the 21-hour training program or equivalent. If you would like to join these workshops, please email us, and include details of your mediation-related training and experience.
