Why Choose an OAFM Accredited Mediator?
The Ontario Association for Family Mediation (OAFM) designations are the standard for excellence for mediation in Ontario:
- Family Mediator (AccFM)
- Child Protection Mediator (CPMed)
- Intergenerational Mediator (IM)
Candidates for accreditation must meet rigorous education, training, and supervised work requirements. Accredited Mediators must also follow OAFM’s Standards of Practice and carry liability insurance for the safety and protection of consumers.
