ADR-LINK connects Children’s Aid Societies (CAS) with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) professionals in the South West Region of Ontario. When a child protection case qualifies for ADR, the CAS contacts ADR-LINK to match the case with a qualified professional accepting cases within that geographical area. In addition, ADR-LINK processes payments, referrals and collects data on the program. In order to facilitate this process, ADR-LINK maintains a roster of qualified ADR professionals accepting cases in any part of the South West Region (Bruce-Grey, Chatham-Kent, Elgin, Huron-Perth, London-Middlesex, Oxford, Sarnia-Lambton, and Windsor-Essex). There are four prescribed methods of ADR including Child Protection Mediation, Family Group Conferencing, Aboriginal Approaches and the 4th Option.
