    Professional skills program in dispute resolution

    Featuring a panel of nationally recognized experts in dispute resolution, this comprehensive program provides two and a half days of unique educational opportunities for practicing professionals. Participants will network with nationally prominent faculty, as well as participants from the other specialties at plenary sessions, lunches, and receptions. Early enrollment is recommended since many of the sessions fully subscribe.  

    Participants select the process in which they desire expertise (one course only), as all programs will be presented simultaneously. To provide for personalized instruction, enrollment for each course is limited to ensure a close working relationship among the faculty and participants. Course sessions will include lectures, small group discussions, and practice exercises. Faculty and other participants will also provide performance coaching. The synergy of ideas will provide a truly unique learning experience.

    Alberta Conflict Resolution Day
    October 17, 2019

    Let's Talk ADR

    Conflict Resolution Day is an international celebration held on the third Thursday in October every year. In Alberta, a committee of representatives from both provincial government and community dispute resolution programs work together to support and promote events across the province.

    Conflict Resolution Day was started in 2005 by the Association for Conflict Resolution in the United States to raise public awareness of creative and peaceful means of resolving conflict. Now communities around the world hold events to mark Conflict Resolution Day.

    Let's Talk ADR

    ADR sometimes stands for Appropriate Dispute Resolution because it describes options other than going to court, but as ADR has become mainstream we use the term Appropriate Dispute Resolution to describe all the choices available to prevent and manage conflict in a non-adversarial way, including: mediation, arbitration, and restorative practices.

    Our goal is to get Albertans talking about their options to work through conflict in a positive and productive way. 

    Date:

    October 17, 2019

    • Fairmont Empress Victoria, 721 Government Street, Victoria BC

    Join us on November 20-22, 2019 for ADRIC’s 45th AGM and Conference in Victoria BC!



    Access to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes such as mediation and arbitration provides families, workplaces, businesses and communities with efficient and effective ways to resolve their disputes without the only recourse being the Courts and litigation.

    The demand for ADR is growing in the justice system, in our personal and professional relationships, and in every sector of our economy.

    ADRIC has spent the past year developing a new strategic plan.  With that plan came a refreshed mission statement which also serves to reflect our goal for ADRIC 2019 conference attendees:

    • Staying on the leading edge of ADR and best practices in Canada and the world
    • Supporting the development of the ADR profession and professionals through information sharing, professional development initiatives, business supports and networking
    • Being a Hub of information and resources to help people and organizations become aware of and learn about ADR and how it can help their families, business and organizations
    • Assisting people and organizations to access the ADR professionals they need
    • Collaborating with other organizations to influence the field of ADR and its effective use in both Canada and Internationally

    Join us on November 20-22, 2019 for ADRIC’s 45th AGM and Conference in Victoria BC.

    ADRIC 2019 is bringing together Canadians and organizations to provide attendees with inspiring, innovative and interactive plenary and poster presentations, keynotes, hands-on workshops, comprehensive panel discussions and great networking opportunities.
