How do I start the process of applying for a professional designation in mediation or arbitration from the ADR Institute of Canada?
ADRIA accepts the applications from our members on behalf of ADRIC, and our regional committees review the applications before they are forwarded to ADRIC for final assessment. ADRIA accepts designation applications 3 times/year. You can read more about the application process here.
You can see a basic summary of the requirements for each designation here.
Read our article “How to Apply for an ADR Designation” to answer the most common questions our office receives about the designation process.
To fully understand all the requirements and forms which need to be submitted for each designation, please read the application information booklets and forms on our Designations page.
