Since 2004, the Family Mediation Practicum Program has assisted many families in resolving a wide variety of family disputes without the need to go to court. Mediate BC is currently developing a new family mediation program called the Family Mediation Mentoring Program to replace the Family Mediation Practicum Program. One of the objectives of the new program is to provide better access to mediation services for families and training opportunities for mediators around the province.
The FMMP will provide mediators with an opportunity to gain practical experience by co-mediating cases with highly experienced mentors in their region in a wide variety of family disputes including parenting responsibilities and property and asset division.
