Mediation Fees

Hourly fees for mediators range from $150 to $750 per hour plus HST, depending on the experience of the mediator. Many mediators have set half and full-day rates. Please contact us to obtain rates for specific mediators.

Cancellation Policy

In the event a party wishes to cancel, adjourn or postpone the mediation, the party must notify ADR Chambers Inc., in writing of the cancellation. If the mediation is cancelled, adjourned or postponed more than 30 days prior to the scheduled date for the mediation, there will be no cancellation fee.

If the mediation is cancelled, adjourned or postponed within 30 days of the scheduled date for the mediation (but more than two weeks from the scheduled date of the mediation), the cancellation fee will be half of the mediator’s fee for the mediation, plus any non-refundable disbursements.

If the mediation is cancelled, adjourned or postponed within two weeks of the scheduled date of the mediation, the cancellation fee will be the mediator’s full fee for the mediation, plus any non-refundable disbursements.

Cancellation fees are due and payable immediately upon the cancellation, adjournment or postponement of the mediation.

In the event that the mediator is able to book other paying work on the date that the mediation was scheduled to occur, ADR Chambers Inc., will refund half of the cancellation fee to the parties.

If a mediation is cancelled, each party will be responsible for half of the mediation fee unless the parties agree otherwise.
