Ontario has recently enacted the Commercial Mediation Act.  There is a good overview " Mediation More Attractive in Ontario" by Sheldon Burshtein at  : http://www.blakes.com/english/legal_updates/litigation/jan_2011/MA.pdf

Colm, thanks for posting this article. It is great to see mediation being considered as such an important process in resolving disputes that they enacted legislation to encourage its use. I am curious if they set guidelines as to who qualifies for mediating these cases? It seems fairly open in the article you provided to anyone that is mutually agreed upon. I also wonder if you are aware of plans to integrate any computer facilitated processes, or ODR principles, into the mediation process this legislation outlines?
