Responsibilities

Corporate primary representative has the responsibility to distribute ADRIC information to others in his/her organization and/or encourage colleagues to become “Stakeholders”  with participating ADRIC Regional Affiliates where the individual has an office location. This entitles the individual to notices of events with a focus on ADR users/customers. Some affiliates may offer further benefits.

In 2000, The Canadian Foundation for Dispute Resolution (CFDR), comprised largely of corporate users and practitioners, merged with the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of Canada (AMIC) to become the ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC).

Over twelve years later, Corporate Members continue to be an essential component of ADRIC’s membership. The long term commitment to Gold Standard ADR™ of our supporters has contributed to the importance of ADR in the legal system, the options advisors present to clients, the services firms provide, the way business is conducted and the way businesses are run. Our Corporate Members also keep ADRIC in tune and up-to date with the needs of law firms, government departments, municipalities, crown corporations and private companies who use ADR services.

Corporate membership is open to business corporations and law firms; professional, industry, and employee groups; municipal bodies and government authorities; and non-profit and other community groups. Corporate members have a commitment to demonstrating leadership in the field of ADR and in using ADR as a business tool to prevent and deal with problems, resolve disputes creatively and cost-effectively, and build solid working relationships with business partners and employees.
