About Adria

The ADR Institute of Alberta (ADRIA) is a registered not-for-profit organization that serves our members, the public, and our clients throughout the province. We are the professional membership body for mediators, arbitrators, and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) practitioners in Alberta. 

As the a regional affiliate of the ADR Institute of Canada, ADRIA is responsible for recommending candidates for the nationally-recognized professional designations of Chartered Arbitrator (C. Arb), Chartered Mediator (C. Med), Qualified Arbitrator (Q. Arb) and Qualified Mediator (Q. Med).

Membership in ADRIA is open to individuals or organizations practicing or supporting ADR in our province.  


ADRIA officially opened in 2012, but we have a much longer history. For 30 years we operated as the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society (AAMS). But AAMS is a registered charity, and in 2012, to comply with Canadian tax laws, AAMS split into two separate organizations with different mandates. 

Today, AAMS is a charity promoting ADR in Alberta, and ADRIA is a non-profit society carrying on the work of a membership organization.
