Complaints

Mediation

The Commission strongly encourages the early resolution of complaints and offers mediation at various stages of the complaint process. Participation in mediation is voluntary.

They will adapt the format and style of the mediation based on the issues raised in the complaint, the complexity of the complaint, the remedies sought and the particular wishes of the parties. They may use a shuttle format or choose to have in-person meetings.
 
We usually allow between 30 and 60 days for the parties to try and reach a resolution. The mediator may close the mediation at any time if it appears that the discussions are not constructive or the there is not reasonable chance of reaching a settlement.
