Family Mediation Canada (FMC) has developed rigorous certification programs for family mediators. FMC currently offers three certification streams – family relations mediator, comprehensive family mediator, and elder mediation mediator.
These certifications are recognized across Canada and internationally as reflecting some of the highest standards in education, training and experience that a family mediator can achieve.
To become FMC-certified, a mediator has to demonstrate a high degree of competency as well as possess high ethical standards. FMC-certified mediators all agree to accept the complaint and disciplinary process that FMC has developed to protect the public interest in the proper and ethical practice of family mediation.
