WHO WE ARE
The Ontario Association for Family Mediation was founded in 1982.
In January 1985, Ottawa was recognized as the first Regional Committee of the OAFM.
Our Ottawa Chapter has been been very active in organizing professional and social events and providing a network for Ottawa area family mediators. Its monthly peer luncheons offer an opportunity for mediators to share best practices in an informal setting, while its monthly dinner meetings feature interesting speakers who keep members informed on a wide range of
family mediation issues.
Our Chapter is dedicated to serving Ottawa families who wish to resolve disputes in a way that is respectful and minimizes the harm that can accompany separation and divorce.
"We are a dedicated group of family professionals who are committed to helping families resolve their disputes outside of court. We believe families are best served by using mediation services from a trained mediator to deal with the issues at hand. We also believe that where there are issues surrounding children, the children come first and their issues should be given priority in any mediation service."
The Ottawa Board of Directors, 2017
