Dialogue and Resolution Services Society

Rethink. Relearn. Resolve. "Would you rather be right, or effective?"

Our Impact Why We Exist

Our mission is to assist individuals, families and groups to manage differences to promote strong, healthy, sustainable relationships. We strive to provide affordable and accessible mediation, arbitration and coaching services and offer workshops that assist people with communication skills through difficult conversation. Reducing the impact of conflict and improving communication skills empowers individuals and creates a healthy collaborative culture that we are proud to be a part of. 

Our Story What We Do

Since 1974, we have been working with community members on conflict and dispute resolution processes. Our goal is to empower communities by providing communication courses and workshops, training for youth service providers and dispute resolution services. We specialize in mediation, arbitration and conflict coaching and are often called upon for team building and communication effectiveness within organizations. Our conflict management and communication courses and workshops have been popular for individuals looking to further develop their understanding of conflict and how to best approach it, on both a personal and professional level. We follow the collaborative conflict management approach to help groups and organizations to explore and implement viable solutions to their issues. Recently we have started offering Parenting Coordinator services for families in need of support through high-conflict disputes.
