Child Protection

Mediation is a viable dispute resolution option when child welfare social workers and other people who are responsible for the child disagree about the child’s safety, wellbeing and plan of care.

Mediators on the British Columbia Child Protection Mediation Program (CPMP) Roster mediate child protection matters pursuant to section 22 of the Child, Family and Community Service Act (CFCSA).

Families and advocates can also contact our Child Protection Navigator Program at 1-877-656-1300 ext. 103 (toll free) or for support. The Navigator can guide racialized families to meaningfully participate in collaborative decision-making processes.

To find out more about Child Protection mediations (including how to access it, how can it help, how to prepare, who should participate, etc.), please sign up to attend one of our Ask a Mediator (Child Welfare) clinics. These are offered on two Wednesdays of the month, 2-4pm, PST.
