Child Protection Mediation

All Ontario Children’s Aid Societies are required to consider using mediation could help resolve any issue related to a child with whose family the Society is working.

A roster of mediators with specialized training has been established to provide Child Protection mediation. The Family Group Conferencing mediation process, using a form of a circle, is also being used to resolve issues.

Child Protection Mediation may be used at any time during the life of an open child protection case. Some examples of topics addressed include:

  • Parent-teen conflict
  • Custody and access
  • Reintegration of children in care
  • Adoption plans

The process is similar to other forms of family mediation.
