Ontario law requires all clients considering family arbitration to be screened, separately, for power imbalances including family violence. The intention is to canvass whether private adjudication is the right process for each family. We will meet each of our mediation-arbitration clients before they commit to an arbitration process for this purpose. If we are arbitrating only, we will refer both parties to a qualified third party to provide us with a confidential report that addresses the screening obligation. And finally, if we are retained to provide third party screening for another arbitrator, we will invite both clients to complete the forms and agreements on our website to enable us to do that and provide a confidential report to the arbitrator. These processes are all procedural assessments only— and do not constitute fact finding. Not all cases are well-suited to private adjucation; screening is meant to make that assessment.
