    An ADRIA Event in partnership with FOAJ


    National Defence - Integrated Conflict & Complaint Management Services

    Please join us as as we resume our luncheons after the summer break!

    ADRIA & FOAJ are pleased to feature Heather Ehlers from the Department of National Defence as our September luncheon speaker. 

    In 2018, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and Department of National Defence (DND) launched an integrated method of dispute resolution for members that has simplified access and management of conflict and complaints. The program brings together former recourse structures of Harassment Prevention, Human Rights and Diversity complaints, CAF Grievance Authority and Alternative Dispute Resolution Services into a single access point for users.

    With 17 Conflict and Complaint Management Services (CCMS) centres across the country, teams of Agents, Practitioners and Educators work to support both members and chain of command. Early, local and informal resolution is at the heart of service delivery together with supportive procedural guidance for rights-based processes. This presentation explores the fundamental aspects of this innovative new model of conflict management and its implications.

    Speaker Bio

    Heather Ehlers has been leading conflict management and employee support initiatives for the last 11 years in both the non-profit and government systems. She is experienced in program development and administration for organizations supporting community, civil and employment-related disputes. Heather has an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Masters Degree in Conflict Analysis and Management, Certificate in Leadership from the Government of Alberta and a Certificate in ADR from the Canada International Institute of Applied Negotiation.

    In her current role with Department of National Defence, Heather is Regional Manager for the delivery of Conflict and Complaint Management Services (CCMS) for Western and Northern Canada. She oversees the operations service points in Edmonton, Winnipeg, Cold Lake and Esquimalt.

    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

    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.
