Corporate & Organizational Membership

Corporate members are an important part of ADRIC’s membership. In fact, ADRIC was formed from a merger of the Canadian Foundation for Dispute Resolution (CFDR) and the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of Canada (AMIC) in August 2000 – where CFDR was an organization with corporate alternative dispute resolution (ADR) end-user members and AMIC was an organization of ADR practitioners.

The long-term commitment to Gold Standard ADR of our supporters contributes to the importance of ADR in our legal system, the dispute-resolution alternatives that lawyers present to clients and the manner in which business operate and resolve disputes. Our corporate members provide us with important perspectives on the needs of individuals and organizations which may be met from a better understanding of the benefits of ADR.

Corporate membership is available to organizations which do not primarily provide ADR services to the public – and include business corporations, law firms, governments, educational institutions, industry associations, non-profit and other organizations.
