ADR FEEDBACK
tracking results ~ demonstrating value

Information about the factors that lead to success in ADR, or inhibit successful outcomes, is a valuable resource for all parties to any dispute. Your assistance in providing information on each of your cases helps us build a resource bank for continuous improvement of ADR practice in Canada.

Our resource bank will provide information on success factors in the use of ADR and the working styles of ADR professionals. With this knowledge, we can help you select the people and services you need to make your ADR experiences positive and successful.

Please answer the following questions about your dispute.

Note: Part 2: ADR Lawyer Assessment is to be completed if you used a lawyer as legal counsel, not as the neutral arbitrator or mediator for the dispute.

When you have completed the ADR Professional Feedback form, please use the "Submit" button on the bottom of the form and it will get us.
