Our fees can vary as a function of a number of factors. We adjust and adapt our fees so that they fit fairly into the circumstances of the client and the work that must be done.

Mediations are typically billed on a full day or half day flat fee basis. The full day flat fee covers all preparation and a seven hour session (usually 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM). The half day flat fee covers all preparation and a three hour session (usually 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM or 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM).

These fees include case administration, pre-mediation preparation and consultation, travel time, and reporting. Facilities costs, when required, are in addition to the foregoing fees. HST is charged as required.

There is no cancellation fee if notice is received at least ten business days in advance of the scheduled commencement of the mediation. There is a cancellation fee of one half the flat fee when there is less than 10 business days’ notice.

In all cases, the parties will be responsible for any non-refundable disbursements incurred.

The mediator’s invoice will be split between the parties to the dispute, unless there is an agreement in writing specifying a different allocation of the fees and disbursements.
