Dispute Resolution Fees
Fees for alternative dispute resolution services are as follows:
Mediation costs $150 per hour of work ($169.50 with HST), including time for preparation and drawing up any agreements, with a minimum of two hours of work. A deposit of $339 is required, which will be deducted from the final cost. Agreements will only be released after full payment has been made.
Conflict coaching and therapeutic mediation sessions are 50 minutes and the fee is $120 ($135.60 with HST). A deposit of $120 is also required, which will be returned once the coaching or mediation is completed. The HST may be waived for individual conflict coaching where mental illness or disability is a factor.
You may pay in either cash, an e-transfer sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, or a personal cheque made out to "Daniel Bader". If you wish to pay by e-transfer, please pay in advance. Otherwise, payment may be made in session.
Conflict coaching and therapeutic mediation services may be covered by insurance and benefit plans. Standard mediation services generally are not, though they may be if mental illness is involved. Since plans are so different, clients are asked to consult with their own insurance and benefit companies. You can check if you are covered for:
- A "Registered Social Worker", "RSW", or simply "social worker" (OCSWSSW #829672 ).
- A Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). (Certificate #8097)
- Someone with an M.S.W. (Master of Social Work)
- Someone with a Ph.D.
