We haven’t been able to resolve our dispute on our own and I'm beginning to think mediation might be just what we need. It tends to be quick, private, more cost effective than going to court, and it allows us to control the outcome of our dispute. Is that something you'd be interested in? 

I took a look at the Mediate BC directory and have found these mediators:

Please let me know which of these mediators you prefer. If none of them are suitable, feel free to search through the Mediate BC directory and offer some more options.

If you have any questions or concerns about mediation, Mediate BC has plenty of information on its website.
