As the only organization in Ontario that grants all three professional designations for family dispute resolution professionals, FDRIO offers our members great value.

For family mediators, our designation is recognized by the Ministry of the Attorney General for court connected work.

For FDR professionals offering more than just mediation, or who want to expand their practices, we are a great choice for you.
