Community Mediation Research Project

Community Mediation Works!

Community mediation helps resolve conflicts by changing the way people communicate. The question is: How well? We decided to find out.

Funded by The Law Foundation of Ontario, our new research report was developed with the Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution. We surveyed participants of community mediation across Ontario. The results showed that community mediation is an effective method to resolve existing and future conflicts. 

On average, 64%25 of people surveyed used the skills the learned in Community Mediation to resolve new conflicts, and gained confidence in resolving future conflicts.
