Mediation

General mediation: $925 non-refundable deposit; $1,850 total selection fee.

Franchise mediation: $750 non-refundable deposit; $1,500 total selection fee.

Flat Fee Mediation Program: For disputes filed with CPR with less than $250,000 at issue, users may opt to have their matter mediated for a flat fee of $3,500, to be split among the parties ($2,500 when a CPR member is involved in the dispute). This amount will entitle the user to one day of mediation (up to 10 hours, including preparation). Thereafter, an hourly rate of $350 will apply, representing a significant discount from the rates normally charged by CPR’s experienced panelists for a mediation.


*Based on claims and counterclaims.

**Administrative Fee is based on the delivery of the final award by the Tribunal to CPR for review within 12 months after the Rule 9.3 Pre-hearing Conference. Thereafter, CPR may charge an additional administrative fee of $2,000 for each additional 6 month period. Moreover, pursuant to Rule 15.8 of the CPR Administered Arbitration Rules, CPR must approve any scheduling order or extensions that would result in a final award being delivered to CPR for review more than 12 months after the initial pre-hearing conference required by Rule 9.3. CPR reserves the right in its discretion to convene a call with parties and arbitrators to discuss the fixing of any additional costs owing to the extended time.
