Community Mediator

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with St. Stephen's as a Community Mediator. Please review the information below before applying. We review applications periodically and will respond as time allows. Please do not hesitate to contact us on the status of your application or to update us on changes to your situation.

For more information, please contact us at (416) 925-2103 x1226 or by email


If you complete the online Volunteer Mediator Application Form, it will be retained on file for one year. If room on the roster becomes available during that time your application will be reviewed along with the other applications being held. We receive about 100 applications per year. 

Preference is given to people who have already taken our mediation training, who speak other languages, and who reflect the diaspora that makes Toronto including diverse cultural, age, sexual identity, class and professional backgrounds. Within a year we may add two or three people to the roster as the program expands and through natural attrition.
