Riverdale Mediation has offered family mediation ‘internships’ for almost 20 years. We are pleased to announce our new partnership with York University, offering access to our acclaimed mediation experience program to York’s top mediation students.

Equipping students for practice, and for certification with the Ontario Association for Family Mediation (OAFM) and the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (FDRIO)— both Ministry of the Attorney General approved designations— our internship and mediator-in-training programs are excellent, affordable, and encourage new mediators to start building their own practices right away.
