ADR has been a huge success in Alberta.  Over 35 years it has left its mark on the courts, regulators, municipal government, families, and civic society.   In 2018, we will celebrate this success and help ADR grow to be the best possible tool to serve Albertans.

Join us at the 2018 Alberta ADR Symposium to learn about advances in ADR practices and programs.  Delegates will be invited to harness their collective wisdom to shape the future of ADR in Alberta.  Our goal is to see ADR widely recognized as the preferred option for resolving disputes.

The sessions will include keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops.  Key themes are:

  • Innovations in dispute resolution
  • Visioning the future of ADR in Alberta
  • Opportunities for networking with the ADR community
  • Strategies to raise the profile of ADR.

The Symposium will also celebrate key milestones in Alberta’s ADR community. Our successes speak to the tenacity of the ADR community and its dedicated practitioners.

The Symposium is brought to you by the Government of Alberta Dispute Resolution Network and Alberta’s not-for-profit ADR communities.
