Shaping the Future of ADR in Alberta

May 15 & 16, 2018

Alternative Dispute Resolution has been a huge success in Alberta.

For 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 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. 

Opening Keynote Session

The opening plenary will focus on celebrating what we have achieved in the ADR community and recognizing how far we have come. 

Break out sessions will include keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops and will move from:

  1. Who we are? Practitioner development
  2. Where are we? Environmental scan; Visioning the future of ADR in Alberta.
  3. What keeps us up at night? Scenarios for reflection
  4. Where are we going? Innovations in dispute resolution.
  5. How are we doing it? Breaking barriers; Strategies to raise the profile of ADR

The Closing Plenary will be a half-day participatory session to create a Common Agenda for ADR in Alberta.

Additional, in-depth training will be available in our Pre and Post Symposium Training workshops May 14 and May 17.
