Membership Categories (effective 2019)
The basic membership fee for "Full" membership is $207.25 (plus HST) calculated as follows:
- $110 plus HST for membership fees collected on behalf of ADR Institute of Canada;
- $97.25 plus HST for membership with ADR Atlantic Institute.
The membership year is January 1st to December 31st.
If you are applying for membership part way through the calendar year, membership fees are prorated quarterly.
Student Member (currently unavailable, under review effective 2019) ~ a person must be enrolled in a Certificate Program in Conflict Resolution or in a Law program that includes study in ADR. The student membership is intended to allow a person who does not have an income from an ADR practice to have a professional association with practicing mediators, arbitrators and conflict coaches. A key principle is that our members will accept a student at a reduced rate while knowing that the student is not yet a professional ADR practitioner and is not using ADR Atlantic membership to advertize services. Fee TBD
Past Members ~ persons who have been members of ADR Atlantic and who decide to retire from ADR practice may continue to be listed as past members (inactive) at no charge for one year after their membership. After this time their profile will be archived and no longer listed publicly. If the person continues to offer ADR services but declines to maintain membership then ADRAI will archive their profile immediately.
