In the family law area, all provincial family laws and the federal Divorce Act encourage families to use mediation to resolve their disputes, however, the process is not mandatory. In other words, for family law, if you accept mediation, it is because you have agreed to mediate, not because you are being forced to. There are national and provincial organizations that train, certify and organize mediators in Canada. Participation in these organizations is voluntary. This means that anyone can hang out their shingle and say that they are a mediator.

Before we go any further, I want to add one small note about evidence in family law proceedings. If any court has “different” standards for the receipt of evidence, I think most lawyers would agree that it is the family law courts. Evidence that would never be accepted in a criminal proceeding or in a serious civil lawsuit (such as emails, recordings or hearsay) may very well be accepted in a family law case if judges think it is relevant and may assist them in coming to a conclusion. This is just something that family law lawyers have come to accept about the way in which family law cases are decided in Canada.

The Jury Acts (each province and territory has one) ban certain categories of people from serving on juries, including Members of Parliament, Senators, judges, justices of the peace, lawyers, law students, doctors, coroners, people involved in law enforcement, jail guards, police officers and (interestingly) the spouses of people in those categories. In addition, people cannot serve on a jury if they have a physical or mental disability that would seriously impair their ability to discharge their duties as a juror.
